This man is incredible. Despite the trauma he suffered, he wanted to help. I have no doubt he is going to be a true survivor and will go on to make meaningful contributions in this world. God bless him.

Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in Boston attack, helped ID suspects

7 hrs ago

Jeff Bauman was still in intensive care, heavily sedated after surgery, but he had something he desperately needed to tell his brother. "He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, ‘bag, saw the guy, looked right at me,'" Chris Bauman said. Jeff, the ashen-faced, wheelchair-bound man in that iconic photo taken in the aftermath of Monday's Boston Marathon bombings, gave a description of the suspect to the FBI, telling them that he wore "a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt." He told them that he locked eyes with the attacker as he placed the bomb-filled bag at the finish line - the bomb that took both of Bauman's legs. [Source]

So the bombers are brothers. 26 & 19. The 26 year old was killed last night. He had a wife and child. Wonder where they are, if police are talking with her now for info. I guess the CT police are watching for the 19 year old now.

Not yet. With one suspect dead and the other missing (and unlikely to give himself up alive anyway), we'll probably never know. I fear this is part of a larger plot/group and this is just the beginning.

I wonder why my comment was erased?  Maybe this is another post with same info.
