BOSTON (AP) -- A recently married couple is among the more than 170 people wounded in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Patrick and Jessica Downes were married in August. Both are avid runners, and he has run the Boston Marathon in years past.

According to an email sent to friends, Patrick Downes had surgery Wednesday and is out of intensive care. Jessica is in surgery and the email says she may be in jeopardy of losing one of her feet.

According to a website set up to raise money for the couple, they met in 2006.

Patrick, it says, is the "ultimate Boston boy" and graduated from Boston College.

It says Jessica is from California and has the "spirit of a lion." She is now a nurse at Massachusetts General Hospital.
