My boss just called in and told me this had happened.  I looked it up and thought I should share it.  There are many places already talking about like here on CNN.  In addition there have been a few videos come out, including the one below.  Is it a terrorist attack or just a freak accident?  I don’t know enough about it at this point so if anyone else can shed some light feel free to jump in.  I’ll try to update if anything new comes up.

As of now there are at least 2 dead and 28 injured from what I’m reading.

** Update 7:30pm **

The bombing is being considered an act of terrorism. Its believed the explosions were caused by portable devices and 2 people are confired dead. There are at least 99 people who received injuries.

There is a “person of interest” being looked into a this time so hopfully we will know more soon.

** Update 04/16/13 **

Its now being said that there are 3 dead and over 140 injured as a result of yesterday’s bombing.  One of the victims who died was an 8 year old boy.  Contrary to what was believed yesterday, Commissioner Ed Davis said there is “no person of interest in custody”.

More info as well as pictures (warning: some are very graphic) and videos can be found over on The Survival Place.  The author has been covering this story very thoroughly the past two days so there is a wealth of information over there.

    I hope no one was hurt. Look for liberal democrats to now try and pass legislation banning marathon running.

    • I hope those who were injured received only minor injuries. I guess we’ll know in the next few hours. But you’re right, there’s a politician out there somewhere right now wondering how they can capitalize on this.
