Hero seen aiding victim is peace protester.
Carlos Arredondo rushed to help victims seconds after the attacks.
As most people ran for their lives he vaulted a fence to get to badly injured spectators and used his clothes and towels to staunch victims' bleeding.
He said: "I jumped the fence and all I saw was a puddle of blood and people with lost limbs."
Carlos helped one victim, Jeff Bauman, who lost both his legs, into a wheelchair and kept talking to him so he wouldn't pass out.
A picture shows Carlos pinching shut an artery on one of Jeff's part-severed legs using his hand as they rushed him to ambulances.
Carlos became a high-profile protester against the war in Iraq after his 20-year-old son Alexander died in action nine years ago.
He was dealt another blow, when his second son Brian, 24, committed suicide in 2011.
