I haven’t seen it reported but I learned from a first responder that Mr. Arrendondo is holding Jeff Bauman’s femoral artery closed.
When people first see that picture (including myself) it looks like he’s just helping guide the wheelchair, but if you look at his right hand you can see it pretty clearly.
Wow. I had no idea. For sure he’d have bled out quickly without Mr. Arrendondo clamping that artery.
Gasp! I didn't know that. I was wondering what the special deal with cowboy hat was. He seemed like anyone else just helping... Now, WOW! GOD Bless him!
