About this Article

The image showed James "Bim" Costello staggering away from the Boston Marathon bombing, his jeans shredded and blackened, his body so burned that he was left needing pig skin grafts on most of his right arm and right leg. The Associated Press got permission to use the image and distributed it globally. A month later, Costello said he's ready to share his story because he fears people are starting to forget the plight of victims who suffered life-altering injuries he calls much worse than his own.
