BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – Two explosions shattered the euphoria of the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday, sending authorities out on the course to carry off the injured while the stragglers in the 26.2-mile trek from Hopkinton were rerouted away from the smoking site of the blasts.

Competitors and race organizers were crying as they fled the chaos. Bloody spectators were being carried to the medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners.

Witnesses reported hearing two explosions on the north side of Boylston Street near the photographer bridge just before 3 p.m. Fox 25's Maria Stephanos, whose husband had just completed the race, reported that the explosion appeared to come from the inside of a building, rather than on the street.

"I was right there, I saw a plume of smoke coming from a building," said Stephanos.

Video from SkyFox showed blood on the ground near the finish line. A Fox 25 photographer at the scene reported seeing a number of victims with lost limbs.

Reuters was reporting that the Boston Marathon headquarters was in lockdown.

It was not immediately known how many people were injured or the extent of their injuries.

The Boston Marathon was suspended. Runners were being stopped at mile 26.

The Massachusetts Ave bridge was closed and the MBTA had suspended service on the B and C lines of the Green Line.

My sister-in-law was running, finished about 45 minutes prior. She's ok, but I still have not heard about several friends who were running and would have been finishing about when the explosions went of. My company also has a store a few blocks away, fortunately everyone there is ok. I am horrified and still a bit in shock.

Thanks guys. My co-workers and friends are all ok as well. I am breathing a sigh of relief for those I know, but plenty of other people are not ok, so let's keep those thoughts and prayers heading toward Boston. Very scary situation.

Glad you sister-in law is OK & hope the same for all your friends.

I have a friend who flew up to Boston on Friday, as he had relatives running the race. Haven't heard from him & hope he is OK.

I only hope they find the mother f ers who did this!

Spoke to my brother-in-law (wife's brother). He was with his four kids ages 5 to 11 waiting for his wife to finish exaxtly where bomb #1 went off less than 25 minutes before the explosion. She finished at 3:47 on the race clock, 1st explosion was at 4:09 on the race clock. They had moved about a block and half away to meet up when it went off. Total chaos afterwards but they were unhurt and got out ok. A friend of theirs and her daughter were seriously hurt. I am still processing how close my beautiful nieces and nephews were to the epicenter. My brother-in-law is trying to run through everything he saw, wondering if he may have seen anything relevent but he has no idea. My sister-in-law is physically sick, a combination of the effects of the race and the aftermath that followed. Thoughts and prayers to all those who were hurt, and to the first responders who run towards danger rather than away. . Godspeed to law enforcement in catching those responsible.

Wow. That is quite the story. I had to call my son and check on him since he and his girlfriend live in Tauton, MA and go to Boston frequently. They weren't there and I am eternally thankful.

K, I am glad for you they did not go this year as I am sure so many who live there , if they don't race or valunteer , jsut go spur of the moment to "just see some of the race."

2112, I agree with you.

goodnicar, good to know your sis and her store workers are ok.



I agree with all of you.

I really cannot deal well with these things. I read the story on the daily mail of the Martin Family.
A whole, sweet, lil, young family. M, D, three kids, parents nurturing a family. Doing the right thing as a family.
What happens to their world. Their whole world is missing someone and....

i saw this today......pretty good.

Patton Oswalt has a deservedly large following on social media for his pithy thoughts and quips. But his serious status update yesterday in the wake of the two explosions at the Boston Marathon is one of the best. Here it is:

“Boston. [F***ing] horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, ‘Well, I've had it with humanity.’

But I was wrong. I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here's what I DO know. If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we're lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they're pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, ‘The good outnumber you, and we always will.’ ”

The Facebook page of the eight year old who was killed in the attack,according to AP, shows a photo of the lad holding a sign that reads "no more hurting people"
Unbelievable

As I already mentioned, my sister-in- law completed the Boston Marathon and although she and her family were in the vincinty when the bombs went off, they are safe. Unfortunately, her training partner's sister and niece were severely injured while waiting at the finish. Friends have set up a webpage to raise some money for them and the response has been tremendous. Please consider supporting their recovery and learn more about them at this link:

Based on what I've seen from you, I don't think you'd know reality if Honey Boo Boo herself were to walk up and bite you on the ass with cameras rolling.

Reports are that these two guys are innocent and cleared, and were before the NY Post photo hit the stands this AM. The NY Post is getting slammed big time right now for this.
