Explosion at Boston finish line Marathon
BOSTON — Dozens of people have been seriously injured after two reported explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
The Boston Globe cited witnesses who reported hearing two large explosions shortly before 3pm ET. The Associated Press reported at least one of the explosions came near the entrance of the Fairmont Copley Hotel.
Meanwhile, photos posted on Twitter showed several people severely injured along Boylston Street–at the center of the Boston’s main shopping district.
Phones were not being answered at the Boston Police Department. But scanner traffic indicated police were investigating “several suspect packages” on Boylston Street.
