Green Bay-- Dr. Jeremy Metzler is a sports medicine physician with Prevea Health and the medical director for the Cellcom Marathon. He was on a fact-finding mission at the Boston Marathon taking notes on how a race, three times the size of Cellcom handles the needs of runners. He had no idea that his medical training would truly be put to the test.
Dr. Metzler was at the main medical tent during the marathon. It's just past the finish line and only a few yards away from where the first bomb went off. Metzler heard it and then ran in that direction with dozens of other medical staff. He triaged victims until police evacuated the area.
