Arriving Friday at the church site, Ballocanag was dressed all in black and kept her eyes closed as she was taken out of an ambulance.

His left hand was wrapped in a bandage and he had a cast on his foot.

The widow, a nurse at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, has undergone multiple surgeries since the tragic accident and still has a long way to go, her family said, after suffering multiple fractures in the arms and legs.
