Former Patriot Andruzzi helps bombing victims
BOSTON (WHDH) -- As soon as the bombs exploded, marathon watchers jumped into action -- with regular people acting as heroes.
Video shows girls trying to help an injured woman.
They needed help carrying her.
A man in a blue shirt is then seen rushing to help.
That man is former New England Patriots lineman Joe Andruzzi.
Andruzzi was at the marathon to support people running for his foundation. He and his wife were near the finish line during the first explosion.
Andruzzi tweeted later, “Jen and I are safe. Thanks for all the tweets. Our thoughts and prayers are will all the victims and their families impacted at today's Boston Marathon. Thank you to all our emergency personnel."
Wednesday, Andruzzi tweeted, "Thank you all for the kind words shared with me the last day or so. Much appreciated. Please continue praying for all the victims and their families impacted by Monday's tragedy. Please say thank you to the real heroes on Monday, the Marathon workers & medical personnel & all the police, firemen & EMTs. They sprung into action."
Andruzzi teamed up with the Kraft family by donating in support of the Boston Marathon tragedy victims. Anyone who would like to give a donation can go to Patriots.com/donate and include 'Boston Marathon' in your donation message.
