By Fox News. Nearly 50 years after the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, the busboy who held the dying senator detailed his last words in a Friday report.
Juan Romero, who was 17 at the time of the 1968 slaying in Los Angeles, was working on that early June night when the presidential hopeful made remarks at the Ambassador Hotel, he recalled in an interview with StoryCorps, according to NPR. . .
Romero, now 67, recalled Kennedy’s final words.
“Is everybody OK?” he asked, to which Romero said he replied, “Yes” before cushioning the senator’s head with his hands.
“I could feel a steady stream of blood coming through my fingers,” Romero reportedly said. “I remember I had a rosary in my shirt pocket and I took it out, thinking that he would need it a lot more than me. I wrapped it around his right hand and then they wheeled him away.” (Read more from “Busboy Who Held Dying Robert F. Kennedy Shares Senator’s Last Words” HERE)

“Chappaquiddick” opened in movie theaters across the U.S., drawing all eyes to the Kennedy family as the film renews questions about the controversial incident at the island off Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts in 1969.
After the assassinations of both his brothers, former Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., was slated to carry the family’s political aspirations, even mulling a run for president of the United States.
But the movie tells the story of the incident that stopped that potential campaign in its tracks—depicting the involvement of Kennedy, then 37, in the fatal July 19, 1969 car accident that claimed the life of a young campaign strategist, Mary Jo Kopechne.
At approximately 12:50 a.m., Kennedy and Kopechne, 28, were driving back from a party hosted by a cousin of Kennedy on Martha’s Vineyard following the Edgartown Regatta, in which Kennedy had sailed. Kennedy’s car plunged 10 feet off of a bridge and into a pond, killing Kopechne and giving Kennedy “a slight concussion.” (Read more from “Kennedy Dynasty Faces a Reckoning as Controversial Film Hits Theaters” HERE)
