    Default Now wth is going on? Explosions at the Boston marathon

    BOSTON (AP) — Two explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon have resulted in injuries.

    Bloody spectators were being carried Monday to the medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners. Police wove through competitors as they ran back toward the course.

    "There are a lot of people down," said one man, whose bib No. 17528 identified him as Frank Deruyter of North Carolina. He was not injured, but marathon workers were carrying one woman, who did not appear to be a runner, to the medical area as blood gushed from her leg. A Boston police officer was wheeled from the course with a leg injury that was bleeding.

    About three hours after the winners crossed the line, there was a loud explosion on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line. Another explosion could be heard a few seconds later.< quote

    What ever happened to a good old fashioned public hanging? Why not take those SOBs responsible and string them up on the square?

    Watching the coverage now. No speculation as to the cause yet.

    Looks like it. Several injured, possibly a number dead. Two explosions, not confirmed to be bombs rather than an accident, but it seems likely.

    Apparently 2 bombs, seperated by about 1/2 block distance w/20 second delay between explosions.

    One at the finish line and the other before the finish.

    Seemed to be at sidewalk level.

    Coverage is all chaos and speculation. Each reporter has a different story.

    News is saying 2 explosions.But,there's has been police scanner talk about "devices".
    A local forum that I'm part of heard from a friend that works at a local hospital.Many,many injuries,some serious.
    Sadly a few deaths as well.

    Both the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald Websites are overloaded.

    Here's another local report: http://www.heraldnews.com/news/x6334...s-to-hospitals

    Apparently a hotel is now being evacuated (Lenox?). As with any real time reporting, there will be a lot of errors in reporting.

    Black SUVs had the area blocked off before the dabris had fallen and the politicians are already on camera.

    I'm listening to the Boston police, fire, ems scanner.

    I hear the Mass general hospital is one of the best trauma centers in the U.S.

    Unconfirmed.

    ATF and bomb squads are all over the area.

    Mass General is one of the best in the world. So is Boston Medical Center. Boston has several outstanding hospitals.

    Boston has three medical schools: Harvard, Boston University, and Tufts with several major teaching hospitals.

    If this is sinister and it seems like it is.
    There's pretty much cameras everywhere in the city.So some are going to show what happened and possibly who was involved.
