CNN PRODUCER NOTE katelyncat a resident of Taunton, Massachusetts, a town outside of Boston, says the day she heard about the Boston Marathon bombing, her heart sank. She knew somewhere amidst the chaos of the race her dad was there. Her father, Detective David Cataldo from the Boston Police Department, was working the marathon that day -- he usually works large events in the city. When she was finally able to reach her father hours after the bombing over the phone, she knew that it would be nonstop work for him.
'He was pulling 12 hour days or more this week,' she explained. She says hearing the news about the arrest of the second bomb suspect came as a huge relief after an unnerving week of worrying about her father and the city of Boston.
My whole family was jumping up and down when we found out he was captured. It was pure relief that this guy couldn't cause any more harm,' she said. The whole experience was highly emotional for her. 'This hit home. I appreciate everyone who was involved with this search. All the cops, the firefighters, all the people, they have been so inspirational. It makes you realize that there are good people out there willing to fight and defend and that is a good feeling.'
