  BOSTON A Charlotte woman who was seriously hurt in the Boston Marathon explosions faces additional surgery, her brother-in-law said Tuesday morning.

Nicole Gross, 31, a personal trainer at the Charlotte Athletic Club, was behind a temporary fence at the finish line with her husband, Michael, when the explosions went off. They were waiting for her mother, Carol Downing, to complete the 26.2-mile race. Nicole’s sister, Erica, was also hurt in the explosions and was in critical condition Tuesday morning.
