READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Nearly two weeks since a pair of bombs blasted a wave of terror through Boston and it's famed marathon, tales of triumph amidst tragedy continue to detail the story of a city and its people.
This evening at 9, Piers Morgan interviews a series of guests, each of whom displayed acts of selfless courage despite tremendous circumstances, in the process earning a much-deserved heroes label.
As his girlfriend lay injured following the first blast, Leo Fonseca scooped her from the ground, carried her to his vehicle, and transported her to the hospital, in the process likely saving her leg, and possibly her life:
"She, even though she was injured, was sort of calling the shots. I don't know that I would have been able to keep my cool, and be able to actually get her to safety, if it wasn't for her telling me to do just that," confessed Fonseca. "I got her into the alley near where my car was parked and I did my best to stop the bleeding with my shirt and with my sweatshirt to try to tie it up the best I could and I put her in the car and we had an interesting drive from there to Mass. General."
Seated next to Fonseca during Friday's interview, Dr. David King reflected on a day which had him doing double duty under the most harrowing conditions. A trauma surgeon at Mass. General, King had just finished the marathon, only to immediately switch gears and begin using his medical capabilities to help those in need.
Having served in both Afghanistan and Iraq, King admitted that injuries he dealt with on that Monday were frighteningly similar to those seen in war zones, a reality he struggled with:
"It's unfortunate that I have to come into my hospital, in my own city, and see patients who are injured in a bomb attack, not just in my own city, but in my own marathon."
Watch the clip, as Fonseca and King expound upon their ordeals, then tune in at 9 for additional examples of ordinary citizens showing courage in moments of tension and terror.
