Ten survivors of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing visited victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting on Saturday at an Orlando hospital, WFTV in Orlando reported.
The bombing survivors spent time with six of the nightclub victims at Orlando Regional Medical Center, WFTV said. They brought their service dogs with them to the hospital.
Bombing survivors Dave Fortier, Celeste Corcoran and Corcoran’s daughter Sydney brought their dogs Sebastian, Koda and Zealand to meet with Pulse survivor Angel Colon.
"There's post-traumatic stress, and it helps to talk with someone who has been through similar situations," double amputee Celeste Corcoran told WFTV.
There were still eight victims of the Pulse shooting in the hospital as of Saturday night, WFTV reported. Five of those patients are in stable condition, and three remain in critical condition. Surgeons at Orlando Regional have performed 61 operations since the June 12 nightclub shooting.
