When two bombs went off near the Boston Marathon’s finish line, Lake County orthopedic surgeon John Cowin jumped over a barricade and started working on the nearby wounded, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

And Bradenton nurse Katie Powers, a volunteer in the first-aid tent, helped convert it to a trauma unit, the Bradenton Herald reported.
