photographic memory

Iconic Boston Victim ID’d Suspect

The wheelchair-bound man being rushed to safety in a now-iconic photo may have lost his legs in the Boston bombing, but he didn't lose his memory. Jeff Bauman says he was waiting for his girlfriend to cross the marathon's finish line when a man in a cap, sunglasses, and black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt dropped a bag at his feet. Minutes later, the bag exploded. His brother Chris says Jeff asked for a pen and paper immediately upon waking up, and wrote the words "bag, saw the guy, looked right at me." He gave the FBI a description, which helped them narrow down their search to the two suspects released Thursday.
