NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island woman who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombings is being welcomed home.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee (CHAY-fee) is one of several guests expected to attend a homecoming party Sunday for Heather Abbott.

The Newport woman had gone to Boston on April 15 to watch the Red Sox play on Patriots' Day and was waiting in line to get into a crowded restaurant when the bombs went off. Doctors amputated her left leg below the knee.

A fundraiser has helped raise more than $50,000 to help Abbott pay medical bills.
