Boston Bombing Victim Jeff Bauman on ‘Speedbump’ Tsarnaev: “He’s dead and I’m still here”

My admiration for this young man grows by the day.  This is just awesome.

Jeff Bauman, a survivor from the Boston Marathon terrorist attack, tells a Boston radio show his killer is dead–and he’s still alive. “He’s dead and I’m still here,” said Bauman, who helped identify the suspects to authorities from his hospital bed.

The survivor describes how he couldn’t speak, but was able to write down tips that led to the suspects. When he woke up from surgery, the FBI and police were in his room anxious to speak with him. Based on his description, the authorities were able to sketch an image of the suspected bomber.

The survivor describes how the suspect stood out to him because everyone at the marathon was having a great time, except the suspect, who we now know is Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He made eye contact with him, but “he didn’t seem right.”
