Ore. doctor attends to wounded at marathon

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon physician didn't have any time to rest after completing the Boston Marathon.

Paul Pearson, of Florence, had just finished the race and was walking back to a hotel with his wife, Rachel, when they heard the first of two bomb explosions.

Rachel Pearson told KCST radio her husband put on his sweats and began to treat the wounded. She said everyone jumped in to help on what she described as "a day like no other."

Pearson said she saw a woman charge out of a restaurant with a linen table cloth to help a young man who had blood flowing from his leg. She praised marathon organizers, saying it was obvious they had trained for this type of emergency.
