From CNN iReport contributor bkruggel:
During the 2012 Sea Turtle Triathlon in Pensacola, a young boy’s prosthetic limb broke during the run. Local Marines who had volunteered to help monitor the course picked him up and carried him the rest of the way to the finish line. There weren’t very many dry eyes in the crowd cheering everyone on. The Marines also helped urge on many other racers and ran with them across the finish line. Semper Fi!
On Sunday, he completed a 150-yard swim and four-mile bike ride. He was halfway through the one-mile run when his leg broke in half. The Marine who carried Baltz to the finish line is Private First Class Matthew Morgan.
