NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — The man whose photograph became an iconic image of the Boston Marathon bombings is back at work.

The Nashua Telegraph (http://bit.ly/ThCQFX ) reports that 28-year-old Jeff Bauman returned to the Nashua, New Hampshire, Costco store this week, 14 months after the bombings that killed three people and injured about 260 others.

An Associated Press photo captured an ashen and bloodied Bauman, who lost both his legs above the knee, being hustled away in a wheelchair by rescuers including a cowboy hat-wearing Carlos Arredondo. Bauman was later able to describe to police one of the two brothers accused of carrying out the attacks.

In a photo on the “Jeff Bauman – Boston Strong, True Patriot and Hero” Facebook page, a smiling Bauman is shown at Costco leaning on one cane.
