A Baltimore area pre-school teacher who lost a leg in the Boston Marathon bombings has been discharged from the hospital.

Erika Brannock, 29, of Monkton, Md., was released Monday from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

A hospital spokesman says Brannock is the last person brought to Beth Israel to be released following the April 15 explosions, which killed three people and injured more than 260.

Her sister, Nicole Gross of Charlotte, N.C., suffered a broken leg and a nearly severed Achilles tendon.

Brannock told reporters Monday that she's looking forward to hugging loved ones, getting on the floor to read to students, and eating steamed crab.

Brannock and Gross were waiting to watch their mother, Carol Downing, cross the finish line when the bombs exploded. Gross' husband, Michael Gross, also was injured.
