CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A former transit police officer who was critically injured during the shootout with the Boston Marathon bombers has welcomed a son three years to the day after he awoke from a coma.

Dic Donohue’s wife, Kim, gave birth Friday to son Connor at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge. That’s the same hospital that treated Donohue after the April 19, 2013, shootout with the Tsarnaev brothers in neighboring Watertown.

Donohue announced the birth on Twitter.

The bullet that struck Donohue severed a major artery. He lost most of his blood and suffered nerve damage. He returned to work with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority police in May 2015, but retired in February, citing the lingering effects of his injuries.

Connor’s big brother was born before the bombing.
