And what we can hope is that somebody -- My goodness.
And unthinkable scene in Boston this afternoon it is quickly becoming clear.
That we're in the middle of a disaster in that city.
At least one explosion this happen possibly to we know that dozens are injured we have reports not from authorities or anyone else.
Of actually seeing victims who did not make it out of this alive.
We do not see an enormous amount of structural damage at all what we see is windows that are blown out.
And people who are injured who came from behind those glass walls.
It's our believe that our belief that that's a hotel there.
But I'm sure some of the people in the sound of my voice no people in Boston and know people let this marathon.
And know people who work in those buildings.
And it is would be wrong trusted to start guessing about where anything was or who who did any thing -- Anything else for all we know there's a kitchen in there.
And the gas line ruptured and it exploded and we have horrible.

And because we don't know whether those reasons are based in any sort of fact at this moment I would read free the latest that we have.
From the scene and quoting from the Associated Press two explosions shattered the euphoria of the Boston Marathon finish line today sending authorities out on the course to try to.
To carry off the injured while the stragglers in the 26 point two mile trek from Hopkinton.
Were rerouted away from the smoking site of the -- competitors and race organizers were crying as they fled in chaos.
Bloody spectators are being carried to the medical tent that had been set up.
To care for fatigued runners.
Quoting here there are a lot of people down one man said whose -- number 17528.
As a man from North Carolina and he was not injured but marathon workers were carrying one woman.
Who did not appear to be a runner.
She was bleeding.
About three hours after the winners crossed the line there was a loud explosion on the north side of -- Austin street.
Just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line of this marathon.
Then another thunderous explosion could be heard a few seconds later.

And -- when they had shot -- the finish line right at four hours.
And that's when you heard an explosion and then you heard an explosion following that as well.
And if you're that big tournament now I didn't see any I didn't see any reason that you already know -- there.
Good I'm right I didn't see any that was the second explosion a look at our planet -- would definitely significant and it would.
It was on the spot at the building you know I -- daughter is about the -- on the Jumbotron while.
The woman with whom you're hearing speak now is a reporter for our station in Boston who was -- -- when this happened let's listen.
-- -- -- -- -- And wondering if maybe that that's where like that like for the Jumbotron was.
Well all the -- people who are they are they could look up that that's where the explosion was on the side of that field.
While so that's right there on that left side again Maria pointing out that.
