Boston Marathon runners carry collapsed man toward finish line

Runners in the Boston Marathon on Monday afternoon exemplified what it means to be "Boston Strong."

In a special scene captured by the Washington Post’s Wesley Lowery, one runner collapsed just shy of the finish line. But instead of moving right past the man, four other runners stopped, picked him up and carried him toward the finish line. Check out the amazing sequence in the photos below:
