Marathon victim/runner from NH

The Concord family of a young man who lost both lower legs in the Boston Marathon bomb blasts is saying thank you to the public.  The father and stepmother of 27-year-old Jeff Bauman say they’re very grateful, and their public gratitude starts with Carlos Arrendondo.  He’s the man in the cowboy hat in the picture flashed ’round the world, holding one of Jeff’s arteries closed while two other first responders frantically get him out of the blast area in a wheelchair, essentially saving his life.  A fundraiser to help pay Bauman’s medical bills begins today at the Bedford Village Inn, selling signature bags of chocolate.

A Portsmouth runner isn’t sure if she’ll return to the Boston Marathon next year, after barely escaping this time with her life.  Vicki Miller, who is 60, was literally caught between the two bomb blasts after slowing down to a walk.  The first bomb went off in front of her, to her left, and seconds later the second one went off behind her.  She says she pushed herself off the pavement and ran through the chaos, and as she finished the race Miller says she felt like she was running for her life.
