Boston Marks Bombing Anniversary
It was two years ago today that two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring more than 260 people. Today, the city is remembering what happened that day by unveiling banners to honor the victims and survivors.
One of the survivors, Jeff Bauman, who lost his legs in the attack, was reunited today with a man who helped save him. Carlos Arredondo will be forever known as the man in the cowboy hat, captured in the now iconic picture, running alongside Jeff, who was being pushed in a wheelchair.
