Jeff Bauman, a 27-year-old spectator who quickly became the face of the Boston Marathon victims after a photo of him being rushed to an ambulance in a wheelchair went viral, reportedly helped to identify one of the men sought in the attack.
According to Bloomberg, Bauman was waiting for his girlfriend to cross the finish line when a man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweater looked at Bauman and dropped a bag at his feet, Bauman's brother Chris Bauman said.
"He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, 'bag, saw the guy, looked right at me,'" Chris told Bloomberg.
Bauman gave the FBI a description of the man he saw while still in intensive care, his brother said.
The suspect Bauman helped identify was Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, who was killed by law enforcement Friday morning. The other suspect, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, 19, remains at large.
