EXPLOSIONS AT BOSTON MARATHON: Dozens Of Injuries Feared
By Adam Taylor | Business Insider – 20 minutes ago
There are multiple reports on Twitter of an explosion at the Boston Marathon.
We spoke to a Boston Police Department Spokesperson who said there was "some sort of incident at 671 Boylston Street", which is the finish line for the race. They could not give out further information at the time of the call.
Live video from CBS shows ambulances at the scene. Fox News reports that there were two explosions, while the Boston Herlad reports that the explosion seemed to be centered in a 'trash can'.
Reporters on the scene are reporting dozens of injuries and lost limbs. TV crews are showing images lots of blood on the ground.
The pictures below all appear to be from the scene. Some show smoke and the explosion, others appear to show injured people (warning some photos may be upsetting):
