Boston Cop Conducts Epic 4th Of July Tribute To Boston Marathon Bombing Victims

Watch injured policeman Dick Donohue, who was shot in a shootout with the Boston bombing suspects, lead the Boston Pops orchestra in a moving and rawkus rendition of Dropkick Murphys’ “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” last night.

Boston cop Dick Donohue was Conductor Keith Lockhart’s surprise guest at the Boston Pops orchestra’s annual 4th of July concert last night in downtown Boston. The MBTA transit officer Donohue spent two months in the hospital after being wounded in a bloody shootout with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects on April 19 in Watertown, MA. He nearly died in Boston’s Spaulding Hospital where he was discharged just a few weeks ago on June 14 and is now expected to make a full recovery. At last night’s concert, Donohue acknowledged all the Boston bombings first responders who without them, he says, he wouldn’t be here today.
