Good story, bad headline. A Globe report on the medical tent at the Boston Marathon,
Volunteers pushed runners into the tent in wheelchairs, and some carried them in from the cold.
Dr. Pierre d’Hemecourt, co-medical director inside one of the tents, said they have been treating runners for numbness and swelling of the limbs. To warm them up, volunteers were wrapping runners in wool blankets and feeding them broth.
“We’re trying to thaw them out,” he said.
