Boston Bombing Victim Reunited With Hero

leave a comment »

This video from CNN news features heralded British journalist Piers Morgan interviewing Tyler Dodd, a man who rescued a girl who was injured as a result of the Boston marathon bombing.

Victoria, the injured girl, had put out a public appeal to seek out her rescuer. She didn’t know his name or anything about him, only that he shielded her, supported her, and helped her in her time of need. Dodd got word of Victoria’s inquiry and went to visit her at her bedside in the hospital.

In the interview, the two discuss the moment when the two finally encountered after she had searched so long for him. Dodd describes the moment as “one of the most amazing spiritual moments of his life.” He recalled being at a loss for words when he saw her, and that there was an immediate unspoken bond between the two. Dodd’s tone in the interview was that of a genuine, pure happiness and gratitude of what had unfolded in the hospital room. The interview was done marvelously and Piers Morgan knows how to handle an interview and how to control the conversation.
