The Colts report that color guard alum, Lee Ann Sauer-Yanni, is recovering after she and her husband were injured as a result of two bombs that were detonated during the Boston Marathon, Monday, April 17. Interviewed from Tufts Medical Center in Boston by NBC's Today Show host Matt Lauer on Tuesday, Yanni, who aged out of the Colts color guard in 2002, reported that she and her husband were approximately 10 feet from the marathon's finish line when the bombs went off. "I'm not sure exactly sure where it was detonated," she said. "It sounded awfully close, we were probably 10 feet from the finish line. It was quite loud and you could definitely smell the smoke when it happened." View interview in the following video.
