Sydney Corcoran has been called a survivor and an inspiration. This week, she gained a new title: prom queen.

The 18-year-old Boston Marathon bombing victim reunited with classmates from her Lowell, Mass., school to attend her senior prom Tuesday, just six weeks after nearly bleeding to death from her leg wounds.

"I keep feeling like I'm going to cry cause I'm just happy to be back," said Corcoran, who decorated the crutches she used to attend the dance. "See now I'm going to start crying! It's just really good to see everyone."
