Marathon bombing survivor’s new book a true story of friendship
CBS Boston - 03/27/2017
Roseann Sdoia and three people who now make up her “inner circle” didn’t even know each other before the Boston Marathon bombing. But the bond they share now is as close as any they have ever known.
Sdoia was gravely injured in the second explosion. Shores Salter, a Northeastern University student, was running away from the blast when he heard her cries for help. He turned around and raced to her side. Salter, who had no medical training beyond what he needed to teach a tennis lesson in high school, held the tourniquet that kept Roseann from bleeding to death.
