Two huge explosions rocked the Boston Marathon finish line at Copley Square just before 3 p.m. today, apparently causing numerous casualties, some possible with traumatic injuries on streets crowded with runners, spectators and post-race partiers, while a top city official said police were finding “more devices.”
City Council President Steve Murphy, who was at the finish line when the two explosions happened, said, “Police sources say they are finding more devices.”
Herald reporter Chris Cassidy, who was running in the marathon, said, “I saw two explosions. The first one was beyond the finish line. I heard a loud bang and I saw smoke rising. I kept running and I heard behind me a loud bang. It looked like it was in a trash can or something. That one was in front of Abe and Louie’s. There are people who have been hit with debris, people with bloody foreheads.”
“Somebody’s leg flew by my head, said a spectator who gave his name as John Ross. “I gave my belt to stop the blood.”
People were yelling, “I need my kids!”
“It was horrific!” said a man who gave his name as Brian Walker. “I saw some horrific wounds. You could literally feel the rush of wind.”
“There are at least a dozen that seem to be injured in some way,” Cassidy said.
And once again President Obama has hastened not to “jump to conclusions” before publically responding to a terrorist attack on Americans, lending to an overall sense of security across the country. Just call him “Lightnin’.”
George W. Bush was in front of microphones within minutes of 9-11. What, Barack has things to do?
Like make sure the White House is safe?
And this is the guy who wants fewer guns in the hands of citizens.
