Boston Nurse Wants Boston Marathon Bombing Victim’s Family To Know She Didn’t Die Alone
Boston nurse Stephen Segatore wants Krystie Campbell's family to know she was not alone when she died from injuries at the Boston Marathon bombing. Segatore, an EMT and a doctor all worked frantically to save Campbell's life but her injuries were too severe.
Segatore tells CNN he wants Campbell's parents to know she didn't die alone and she didn't suffer long. Segatore, himself a parent, says he would want to know that if that was his daughter.
"We did everything we could to save her, but her wounds were too great." -said Segatore.
When Campbell was brought to the medical tent where he was helping out, she was unconscious and had multiple wounds. Segatore told her he was a nurse and promised to take good care of her. He also told CNN she must've been close to the bomb blast because she had black marks on her face which looked like gunpowder.
Segatore, who works in the intensive care unit of Boston's Tuft's Medical Center, hopes that he can help to ease the grief Campbell's parents are going through. Campbell, who lived in Medford Massachusetts, was 29 years old.
