Watertown Man Describes Finding Marathon Suspect in Boat


BOSTON (WGGB/AP) — A Massachusetts man who found the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect hiding in his boat says he’s an “incidental hero” who’s glad he was able to help to the victims.

David Henneberry of Watertown spoke in an interview Tuesday with Boston’s WCVB-TV.

Henneberry said 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 said he saw a body inside, but didn’t see the face. He said he doesn’t remember going down the ladder to call 911, but says “I didn’t waste any time.”

Police arrested Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the subject of an intense, daylong manhunt.

Henneberry says he feels lucky to alive.
