Amid the chaos, heroes emerge from every direction

People rush from nearby apartments, stores and a hospital to help. 'This event showed what Americans are made of,' one storekeeper says.

BOSTON — In the chaos that descended on Boston's Boylston Street after two bombs detonated at the finish line of the city's beloved marathon, heroes emerged from every direction.

A young surgical intern who had just finished a 14-hour hospital shift pushed his way through the police lines to treat victims at the end of a marathon route. An Army veteran who served in Afghanistan soothed a gravely wounded young woman by showing her his own shrapnel scars, assuring her that she would survive. And then there were the scores of Bostonians who ran from their apartments offering water, shelter, cellphone chargers, the shirts off their back to disoriented runners, small slivers of grace amid the horror.

It was the urge to help, even in some small way, that sent all of them racing to the scene after Monday's explosions.
