Former Patriots offensive lineman Joe Andruzzi carried an unidentified woman away from the bombing scene.

Andruzzi was photographed carrying a woman by Globe photographer Bill Greene. He released a statement in which he said he would prefer not to talk about his experience.

“Marathon Monday should be about uplifting stories, personal challenges and fundraising milestones, but today’s bombings irrevocably changed that,” Andruzzi said.

“While I appreciate the interest in hearing our perspective on today’s horrific events, the spotlight should remain firmly on the countless individuals - first responders, medics, EMTs, runners who crossed the finish line and kept on running straight to give blood, and the countless civilians who did whatever they could to save lives.

“They were the true heroes. Our thoughts prayers go out to all those affected by this senseless tragedy.”

Andruzzi was at the marathon to support a team that was running to raise money for his charity.

Andruzzi played for the Patriots from 2000-2004. His three brothers are New York City firefighters who were in action during the Sept. 11 attacks.
