(SOUNDBITE) (English) BOSTON BOMBING SURVIVOR HEATHER ABBOTT SAYING: "It was very scary. I did not know, you know, what was going to happen to me, if it was just my foot that was injured." The 38-year-old from Newport, Rhode Island had just walked into a bar when the bomb detonated. Her left foot was badly injured, and had to be amputated. At a news conference she was asked about the bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (SOUNDBITE) (English) BOSTON BOMBING SURVIVOR HEATHER ABBOTT SAYING: "I haven't thought much about them at all. I don't even know how to pronounce their names. I haven't watched TV since the incident and I think that is one of the things that is kind of helping me get through this, to just focus on my recovery and, you know, how to proceed with my life. I am sure at some point I will be interested in the details and have an opinion about the individuals that did this but I just have not let my mind go there at all." Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police -- his younger brother Dzhokhar lies wounded in a Boston hospital where he faces charges that could carry the death penalty.
