Boston firefighter James Plourde carried McGrath to a medical tent after the blasts. The image was one of many circulated in the media after the attack. Plourde released a statement Monday saying, "It's been said that I helped to save her life, but the truth is Victoria saved my life after the marathon as her love, support and friendship helped myself and my family deal with the acts of 4/15/13. Our thoughts and prayers to out to the McGrath and Perez Torres families as they deal with this unimaginable tragedy. #BostonStrong."
