Boston double amputee Jeff Bauman given hero’s welcome at Bruins game

Bombing victim Jeff Bauman is given a hero’s welcome at a Boston Bruins quarterfinal series game Saturday evening — an altogether fitting and proper gesture.

And yet another feel good moment out of Boston, a reminder of what’s uniquely and inherently good about this country and its people, as Independent Journal Review author Michael Miller wrote.

One of the most iconic images of the terrorist attack in Boston is a photo of a bloodied and ashen Bauman being rushed to an ambulance in a wheelchair, having lost the lower portion of both of his legs. (AP photo)

A gruesome image that is indelibly etched into the minds of most Americans. But Bauman’s story doesn’t end there.

Incredibly, while still in intensive care at Boston Medical Center, he helped the FBI zero in on the men responsible for the attack by giving them a description of the man he saw place one of the bombs, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Bauman’ message for Bruins fans:

“I want to thank everyone for their amazing support for me and all those injured and their families. I’m making great progress and I thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. Please continue to respect our space at this time. I want to thank the Bruins players and organization for the generosity and support for all those impacted. Like all those in Black and Gold, I can’t wait to see them on another quest for the cup. Go Bruins!”
