Joe Berti, a software company chief executive and gym owner, witnessed both the Boston bombing and the fertilizer plant explosion last week in Texas.

Joe Berti Interview

He and his wife were just meters from the finish line in Boston Monday when the bombs – reportedly set by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother – went off.

After flying home to the Lone Star State, he was driving down I-35 when the West, Texas fertilizer plant explosion occurred, peppering his car with debris.

In both cases, Berti emerged unscathed, though surely shaken up a bit mentally.

Asked if he feels unlucky, having witnessed two deadly events like this in the span of a week, Berti said he feels blessed that he and his family are okay.

Asked if this was JUST TOO CONVENIENT, Reddit and 4Chan said they’d look into it.
