Explosions at a Boston Marathon

Explosions at Boston Marathon

A scene of the Boston Marathon, where explosions were reported near the finish line of the race on April 15, 2013. (ABC News)

By COLLEEN CURRY
April 15, 2013
There are reports of two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

The blasts occurred on Boylston Street hours after the top runners had finished the race, but with thousands of marathoners still running the route.

The first blast was quickly followed by a second.

There was no immediate information on injuries, but Boston EMS personnel could be seen shuttling the injured out of the blast area on wheelchairs. Several of them were bleeding from the face.

Police have told people in area to avoid trash cans, according to witnesses.

The explosions erupted on what is usually a festive day in Boston. It is designated Patriots Day and most offices are closed for the celebration and the marathon.
SOURCE - http://abcnews.go.com/US/explosions-...e#.UWxXCbU3uSo

Very disturbing and frightening. I'd recommend staying away from pictures being posted about the situation
So far from what I've read, 23 have been injured with 2-3 deaths

Thoughts and prayers go out to the victims

Judging from what's being reported, it seemed to have come from trash cans.

So what's the deal here? I mean, I'm sure there's plenty of security around these marathons, but for goodness sakes, do they not check even the most obvious of places for these bombs?

There's probably more to this story than meets the eye, but that's all that I've gathered from the reporting so far.

Deep condolences to those injured and the families of those who have lost their lives.

Currently watching it in my economics class as a group. Airlines have been temporarily closed. Roads blocked.. I dunno it sounds nerve-wrecking. And update: 23 injured. And they're expecting the number to go up.


EDIT: Two more explosive devices have been found, they're being dismantled.

While I a very untrusting of our government in its current state, I think you're jumping the gun a bit - and this is coming from one of the biggest conspiracy theorists on the board.

This will make a fair amount of conspiracy theories.

This is going to sound extremely stupid, and don't think I'm saying its them, but as soon as I saw this it reminded me of the rumours saying North Korea would set something off on the 15th, to mark Kim Il Sungs 101st birthday, highly doubt it's anything to do with them, just reminded me of that though. The rumours are getting more extreme.

I don't think peace will ever be achieved, not when you can make home made bombs and there are rifts between people in humanity. There will always be rifts. I can only really say I hope no one else gets hurt over there.

It has less to do with how easy explosives are to make and more to do with the fact that evil people will always exist, not to mention the mentally ill/

Not jumping the gun, I had my mind made up shortly after 9/11

Not to sound rude, but it's her family that should be in your prayers.
