Carlos Arredondo Attends to Jeff Bauman

Kelvin Ma, a photographer for the Bloomberg Photo Service, was stationed about 50 feet from the finish line at the Boston Marathon as the April 15 explosions occurred. Ma took the photo of wheelchair-bound Jeff Bauman moments after he looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him. In Kelvin's words, "The man, later identified as Jeff Bauman, had lost both legs below the knee and was being carted away on a wheelchair as the now well-known peace activist Carlos Arredondo sprinted beside him, applying tourniquets to both limbs".
