BOSTON, Mass. (WWLP) - A Boston transit officer who survived a showdown with the marathon bombing suspects is finally heading home from rehab.
He's spent the last month learning to walk again after suffering from a severed femoral artery that almost took his life.
This shootout in Watertown in April left MBTA transit officer, Richard Donohue without a pulse by the time he got to the hospital.
"I can take a few steps on my own. I can walk with a cane. So, I'm better in some regards, but I still have a long way to go." Said officer, Richard Donohue.
He still has a long recovery, but he does plan to return to work.
