Marathon bombing victim Jeff Bauman back to work

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — A Boston Marathon bombing survivor who was photographed in an iconic image of the attacks is back at work.

The Nashua Telegraph (http://bit.ly/ThCQFX ) reports that 28-year-old Jeff Bauman returned to the Nashua, New Hampshire, Costco store this week, 14 months after the bombings that killed three people and injured about 260 others.

An Associated Press photo captured an ashen and bloodied Bauman being hustled away in a wheelchair by rescuers including a cowboy hat-wearing Carlos Arredondo. Bauman was later able to describe to police one of the two brothers accused of carrying out the attacks. He lost both his legs above the knee.

In a photo on the "Jeff Bauman - Boston Strong, True Patriot and Hero" Facebook page, a smiling Bauman is shown at Costco leaning on one cane.
