Two Explosions at the Boston Marathon
My brother goes to school within a few miles, so this really hit home for me.


BOSTON (CBS) – Several people have been hurt in two explosions near the Boston Marathon finish line.

It happened around 2:45 p.m. outside Marathon Sports on Boylston Street, according to WBZ-TV’s Lisa Hughes, who was near the scene covering the marathon.

"There are a lot of people down," said one man, whose bib No. 17528 identified him as Frank Deruyter of North Carolina. He was not injured, but marathon workers were carrying one woman, who did not appear to be a runner, to the medical area as blood gushed from her leg. A Boston police officer was wheeled from the course with a leg injury that was bleeding.

I'm starting to get worried about my family safety.

My friends in the Boston area are safe. I'm happy.

Although one joked and said he lost his leg. NOT funny. ):

There were a few people from around where I live that were there, and they all finished and are okay. Hoping there won't be any more bombings or deaths.

Apparently one of them was killed, while the other just got caught recently.

but their father thinks they have been set-up but we will see about that soon enough.

either way, whoever it may be, they are definitely not gonna get away with this.
