    Jeff Bauman Returns to Boston Marathon Finish Line

    BOSTON (AP) - Boston Marathon survivor Jeff Bauman returned to the finish line Monday after losing both his legs in last year's marathon bombing.
        
    Bauman stood in the viewing stands just past the finish line with his fiance, Erin Hurley, and Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost her left leg in the bombing. They all applauded runners as they crossed the finish line.
        
    Bauman was wearing his prosthetics and used crutches. They sat a few feet away from Carlos Arredondo, who helped save his life.
        
    As he walked away from the finish line under his own power, his prosthetics showing, Bauman said it felt "great" to be back. He also said he felt very safe.
        
    It was the first time Bauman had returned to the scene since two bombs exploded near the finish line on April 15, 2013.
