BOSTON — The hero special officer who came to the rescue of a psychiatrist under attack by a rampaging madman is a former seasonal Provincetown cop and champion boxer who was on the list to be considered as a Boston cop.
Paul M. Langone, 33, of Reading was described as an academy-trained, licensed special officer who was armed while off duty when he encountered a horrific scene: a patient brutally stabbing Dr. Astrid Desrosiers at the Massachusetts General Hospital Bipolar Clinical and Research Program on Tuesday afternoon.
