BOSTON, MA (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — Once again, an American city has been the target of a deadly terrorist attack, this time, the target was Boston. An attack that looked more like Baghdad and it came during the running of that city's hugely popular, iconic Boston Marathon.
Cameras were rolling at the finish line as a pair of explosions tore into the crowd on Boylston Street just before 3 p.m. Eastern time. Police and first responders scrambled as smoke and chaos and fear filled the street.
Three people are confirmed dead, more than 140 injured, some of them very seriously, many reportedly with lower leg injuries, here NBC's Anne Thompson.
At first it almost sounded like a cannon blast, it felt so strong it almost blew my hat off, and everybody started running, some people ran towards it to help people, but there were some bad, bad injuries some people were very very badly hurt.
