Bombs Kill Two and Injure More Than a Hundred at Boston Marathon Finish Line
With thousands of runners still on the course, two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15, 2013 killing three (3) people, injuring at approximately one-hundred-and-thirteen (113) and turning the city’s most celebrated event into a horrifying spectacle of shattered glass, blood and screams. Hospitals reported that at least two children were among the injured.
This sad act of terror that caused the wrongful death of at least one 8-year-old child had witnesses who saw horrific injuries including blown-off limbs and bodies thrown to the asphalt.
President Barack Obama said authorities did not know who carried out the attack but vowed to render “the full weight of justice” against those responsible.
