BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — LSU professor and athletic trainer Ray Castle spoke about his experiences at the Boston Marathon.
He brought three LSU student-trainers to help runners after they crossed the finish line.
Castle and his students rushed in to help in the aftermath of the Boston bombing, but it's still hard for Castle to talk about what he saw.
"For the athletic trainers that were there, we did what were trained to do. It's plain and simple – it’s what we do every day,” stated Castle. “I just remember thinking, ‘I am running into a bombsite’, and that's all I remember."
He says he'll never forget what happened and will use his experiences to teach others how to handle situations like that.
