The picture that moved me the most during the entire Boston Marathon bombing ordeal was the picture of the woman laying on the ground with others around her attempting to comfort her. It turns out that woman was Sydney Corcoran and we’ve got details about her amazing story.
She was standing next to her mom, Celeste Corcoran, near the finish line at the Boston Marathon when the explosions occurred. Her mom lost both of her legs during the blast. Sydney Corcoran’s legs were torn apart by shrapnel. The most dangerous injury was a ruptured femoral artery.
Thankfully, strangers were able to stop the bleeding and the doctors at the hospital saved her life. One of the strangers on the street was Matt Smith. After she woke up at the hospital, she started asking everyone to find Matt.
Matt Smith was found and he went to the hospital to meet Sydney Corcoran once again. It was emotional, as you will see in the pictures. She also got a visit from Bradley Cooper, the famous actor.
While it sounds like Sydney Corcoran and her mother Celeste Corcoran will survive, they need our help. Please consider donating to their recovery fund that will go toward healing these beautiful women.
