Veteran Runs Boston Marathon On Prosthetic Leg & Carries His Guide Across The Finish Line

During Monday’s Boston Marathon, Earl Granville ran on a prosthetic leg.  

The nine-year-veteran lost part of his leg in the summer of 2008 when his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. 

Following his injury, Granville competed in multiple marathons, including Boston, Chicago, Detroit, and New York using a hand-bike.

In Boston, just before completing the marathon, he paused long enough to pick up his guide and carry her across the finish line.
