Boston Globe Reporting Almost 100 Bomb Victims Currently Being Treated
The Boston Globe is reporting 2 killed and over 90 injured in a headline on their website (not their site may be down due to extreme traffic).
From The Boston Globe,
Two people were killed and dozens were injured this afternoon as two powerful explosions detonated in quick succession near the Boston Marathon finish line in Boston’s Back Bay section, turning a scene of athletic celebration into bloody chaos.
A third explosion was reported at the John F. Kennedy Library in the city’s Dorchester section, said Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis. Authorities were treating it as related to the first two.
Two more explosive devices were found and dismantled, The Associated Press reported. The Federal Aviation Administration announced a ground stop for Logan International Airport until further notice; it wasn’t clear if the ground stop was related to the blasts.
Asked if the explosions were a terrorist act, Davis said, “We’re not being definitive on this right now, but you can reach your own conclusions based on what happened.’
He said the attacks had occurred without warning. “We have no information that this was going to happen,” he said.
Thoughts and prayers with the people of Boston, the victims, their families and the first responders.
