Nurse: Campbell Didn’t Die Alone

    MEDFORD, MA - APRIL 17: Flowers and a sign are left on a street post in Medford Square in remembrance of Krystle Campbell, 29, of Medford, Massachusetts, who was killed by the bomb explosions at the Boston Marathon on April 17, 2013 in Medford, Massachusetts. The explosions, which occurred near the finish line of the 116-year-old Boston race on April 15, resulted in the deaths of three people with more than 170 others injured.

    A courageous nurse who fought to save Krystle Campbell—one of the three people killed in the Boston Marathon blasts—would like to send her family a message: she did not die alone. Stephen Segatore, who works in the Tufts Medical Center ICU, was volunteering at a tent near where the bombs detonated when EMTs rushed 29-year-old Campbell inside. Segatore says he spoke to her before she died, telling her he would take care of her and keep her safe. After 10 minutes of CPR, Campbell succumbed to her injuries—wounds that were “too great” to overcome, he says. Still, Segatore hopes the knowledge that he was there in her final moments will offer even a tiny bit of solace to her parents. “I don't think she lingered. I don't think she suffered," he said. "If it were my daughter, I would want to know that."

    Stephen Segatore says he did “everything he could” to save her.
