BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts man who found the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect hiding in his boat says he’s glad he was able to help and feels lucky to be alive.
David Henneberry of Watertown spoke in an interview Tuesday with Boston’s WCVB-TV.
Henneberry says he didn’t see blood outside his boat Friday evening but went to check it twice because its cover was disarranged. The second time, he climbed a ladder, lifted the wrap, and saw “a good amount” of blood on the floor.
Henneberry says he saw a body inside but didn’t see the face. He says he doesn’t remember going down the ladder to call 911 but “didn’t waste any time.”
Police arrested Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after an intense daylong manhunt.
