Three Civilian Heroes from the Boston Marathon Bombings Named  The Boston Globe Magazine’s “Bostonians of The Year”

Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 20, 2013

The Boston Globe Magazine announced today that it has selected Natalie Stavas, Dan Marshall and Larry Hittinger—three heroes among us who sprang to action during the Boston Marathon bombings—as 2013 “Bostonians of the Year.” They will be featured in a special edition of The Boston Globe Magazine on December 22, and online at bostonglobe.com/magazine. The magazine will also include profiles of 12 other Bostonians being honored for their achievements in 2013.

Ignoring the basic human instinct to flee from danger, Stavas, Marshall and Hittinger charged into the carnage of the Boston Marathon bombings to aid victims.

Stavas, a 32-year-old pediatric resident training jointly at Boston Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital, and competing in her fourth Boston Marathon, jumped a barricade and rushed to the Marathon finish line to help the wounded.
