I ran into Tyler Dodd on the corner of Dartmouth and Stuart yesterday, right near Back Bay station. I couldn’t help but notice the bloody fingerprints on his shirt. He told me a few things about what he had just experienced. That he had been nearby when the explosions went off, and ran immediately towards them. He knew his medical training was in need, so he asked a police officer where to go.
After some coaxing, Dodd agreed to tell me the full story on record. See the rest here at Esquire.com.
He’s uncomfortable with the title, but he truly is an American hero.
