LOWELL, Mass., May 29 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts teenager injured in the Boston Marathon bombings was crowned prom queen by her class.

Sydney Corcoran, a senior at Lowell High School, was injured along with her mother, Celeste, in the April 15 bombings. She was crowned prom queen at the dance Tuesday night, WBZ-TV, Boston, reported Wednesday.

"I know that I can't dance with them but just to be back with my friends from high school, I haven't seen them in over a month so I'm happy to go tonight and see everyone," said Sydney, who is recovering from shrapnel injuries.

Celeste Corcoran, who lost both of her legs in the bombings, said she is proud of her daughter. "She's been through a lot. She deserves to have fun tonight," she said.
