RENO, Nev. -- A Sparks man who was injured in Monday's blasts at the Boston Marathon had a special homecoming Friday night. It was an emotional return for Frank Kight as friends and family members were at the airport to meet him.

He was in Boston to see his daughter, Amy, run the marathon. He was near the finish line when the bombs went off. He and his ex-wife, Marilyn, were both injured and taken to separate hospitals for treatment. They spent the last few days with family in New Jersey before returning home.

They say it is good to be home, "[It's] great, absolutely great. You can see a lot of friends and relatives here... so fortunate for my family to be okay, so lucky in that regard. My heart goes out to those victims who were killed and severely wounded... We think about them and all the best to the families. We're very fortunate to come back and the family's okay."

The Kight family says there's been an outpouring of community support. They have received a lot of phone calls, prayers and well wishes from all over the area the past few days.
