Police Call For Evacuation as Multiple Deaths Reported From Boston Marathon Explosions
There are some very sick people in our world and hopefully the person or people behind this incident will be brought to justice. Our thoughts and prayers go out to anyone who was affected by this tragedy.
The details of what happened are still unclear, but here are some live reports from people who were on the scene at the time of the explosions.
At least two people died and 22 others were injured Monday after two bomb blasts ripped through the crowd near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Witnesses said the blasts occurred in quick succession about 2:50 p.m. on Boylston Street near the intersection of Exeter Street, three hours after the winner had crossed the finish line. Some store fronts were blown out.
“Somebody’s leg flew by my head. I gave my belt to stop the blood,” spectator John Ross told the Herald.
“There are a lot of people down,” one man, whose bib No. 17528 identified him as Frank Deruyter, told the Associated Press.
There are reports that more bombs could be in the area, so please try to make your way to a safe place.
The video of the 1st explosion is terrifying.
