Summary
Jeff Bauman woke up on Tuesday April 16 2013 with no legs. Just thirty hours earlier, he was surrounded by revelry at the Boston Marathon. The first bomb went off at his feet as he waited for his girlfriend to run down the finishing straight. Days later, waking up from hours of surgery, Jeff ripped out his breathing tube and tried to speak. He couldn't. Jeff asked for a pad and paper and he wrote down seven words: 'Saw the guy. Looked right at me.' This set off one of the biggest manhunts in America's history and began Jeff's road to recovery
Summary
