A manhunt for Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing ended after he was apprehended on a boat parked on a residential property in Watertown, Massachusetts.

Amid all the pain of the Boston Marathon bombing comes one happy ending: A burn victim being treated at Spaulding Hospital met a nurse named Krista D’Agostino, whom he discovered he liked very much. “I somehow convinced her to attend a benefit with me, which turned into a few dates, which turned into a few inseparable months,” James “Bim” Costello wrote on Facebook, per the Boston Globe. On Sunday, the pair got engaged.
