Bombing Victim in Iconic Photo Helped I.D. Suspect


Jeff Bauman, the 27-year-old bombing victim who was helped by activist Carlos Arredondo and later lost both legs, wrote a note saying that he "saw the guy" right before the bomb exploded, Bauman's brother Chris told Bloomberg News. The FBI has declined to comment on the report.

“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
