The busboy who held Robert F. Kennedy after the senator was shot at the Ambassador Hotel in California is opening up about the senator’s final moments in 1968.

Juan Romero continues to struggle with what happened that day 50 years ago, which saw him go from desperately hoping RFK would shake his hand to cradling the mortally-injured politician’s head on the floor of the hotel’s kitchen.

“I remember extending my hand as far as I could, and then I remember him shaking my hand,” the California man, who worked at the hotel at the time, told StoryCorps which aired on NPR’s Morning Edition. “And as he let go, somebody shot him.”

In an instant, he had Kennedy in his arms as both of them hit the floor.

Photojournalists captured the tragedic moment in black and white photos, Kennedy lying on the floor as a then-17-year-old Romero searched for help and did his best to make the senator more comfortable.

“I kneeled down to him and I could see his lips moving, so I put my ear next to his lips and I heard him say, ‘Is everybody OK?’ I said, ‘Yes, everybody’s OK,’” Romero said. “I put my hand between the cold concrete and his head just to make him comfortable.”
