At least 2 people dead and about 73 people were reported hurt in a simultaneous double explosion at the Boston Marathon Finish Line. The explosions are reported to have occurred at 2:45pm after nearly 27,000 runners had crossed the finish line.
However the Boston Globe is reporting a much higher injury count as of now. They report that at least 107 people are being treated for injuries at the local hospitals.
According to the Boston Globe via Twitter President Obama said:
“We will get to the bottom of this. We will find out who did this. We will find out why they did this.”
According to reports,the two blasts occurred along Boylston Street near Copley Square about 50 to 100 yards apart.
My heart and prayers are with those who have lost a loved one and are injured.
P.s: Google has established a person-finder related to the Boston bombings. People who are looking for someone or have information about someone can make reports there. http://t.co/2869EbkZfg
