Practical how well here's where we -- are this videotape there.
In week -- you may note -- -- can corporation which owns this company owns another company that does a similar thing in Great Britain.
And they got some video from someone on the ground -- having way of knowing -- but clearly the camera was -- from one side of the street to the other.
And we saw one explosion on one side that almost.
I will appear to be coming from the building.
And another explosion on the other side.
Within a matter of seconds there so I'm pretty sure if you were covered -- fair use here.
There are laws that the regulate certain rules that regulate what video we can use and what video we can't if it's not from us.
And that's something that lawyers have to be in the middle of but I think we have.
This key to all of this here in that video that we were just showing.
And I have had about enough of this still picture.
We now know an explosion happened on one side of the street.
And then on another Jonathan and -- is definitive definitive as anything I've seen.
Just it certainly is a world when you look at that -- it.
Makes sense of something the Boston Globe was just reporting and I'm quoting here from the -- and -- multiple people transported for medical treatments.
Blood stained the sidewalks of boil some straight.
And if and it remains -- -- at the moment but if those what I explosive devices prompted.
It appears that they would timed to go off within seconds of each other it's a it's a big -- for the moment but those two explosions.
Appearing -- -- we just seeing from sky news.
One still of one on one side of the street.
And the actual explosion in video on the other side of the street literally within seconds of each other by the look.
And Simpson new reports coming in now Jonathan this -- I'm gonna read from the Boston Herald newspaper.
The reality of what's happened here is -- sinking in and quickly.
I'll quote now from some people who saw some things that nobody ever wants to see.
I hope no no one in the sound of my -- ever sees this.
But it's part of this story and I'm gonna read to you there.
-- I saw two explosions the first one was beyond the finish line.
I heard a loud bang and I saw smoke rising this again from The Herald reporter Chris Cassidy who's running the marathon quoting again.
I kept running and I heard behind me allowed bang it looks like he was in a trash can or something that went from -- -- Luis.
And quoting again.
Somebody's leg flew by my head.
Said a spectator who gave his name to John Ross -- reporter I gave my built to stop the blood.
People were yelling I need my kids.
It was terrific -- a man who gave his name -- Brian walker.
I saw some horrific wounds.
You could literally feel the rush of wind.
And another quote there or at least a dozen that seemed to be injured in some way that's from the Boston Herald reporter Chris Cassidy.
Chris Macintosh who's the publisher of the Boston business journal who was in the Lenox hotel near the scene said quote.
It's chaos down here two bombs just went off at the finish line within five seconds of each other.
There must be casualties announcing fire trucks and ambulances so all of this is the earliest for.
According in the seconds and minutes after the explosions happen quoting it was a really loud explosion glass and smoke everywhere we just ran.
He said he found what appeared to be a shotgun pellets in his coat pocket seconds later.
A shotgun pellet.
Which would suggest to us in the early going and we can't know this.
But if you're finding shotgun pellets somebody has potentially read a device.
With shotgun pellets around it so when the explosion happens.
Those pellets and whatever else they found were put in there.
It appears from the facts before our eyes.
The witnesses statements the video that we've seen this afternoon.
That we are in the midst.
Of some sort of terrorist attack.
The president has been notified.
Had the incident in Boston his administration is in contact with state and local authorities he directed his administration to provide whatever assistance is necessary.
In the investigation.
And the response to.
Those are likely ball bearings.
Not shotgun pellets.
-- -- ball bearings which those who wish to do us harm have traditionally use when setting up.
Terrorism is defined.
-- By these pictures.
Now to find out whether there are more devices.
Whether this incident is over one.
And to find the people who are responsible.
For forever changing the Boston Marathon in the city that houses it -- it it's 10 minutes before 4 o'clock in Boston in the nation stands yet again.
In the face of an attack on one of our greatest cities.
The marathon the longest running race of its kind in this nation where the fastest people in all the world com.
And whoever did this targeted not the ones who across the finish line first.
But those who would cross in the afternoon hours.
After the Red Sox had long left the field after the television cameras have a long left the winners positions.
And people who run this race in some four hours or so who have trained in their own towns and come to Boston to show -- to prove that they have excelled in this matter and then celebrate after on patriots day.
It is they who were targeted today.
With two separate explosions on two separate sides of the street.
Clearly time to detonate within seconds of each other if the reporters who were on scene were right.
And ball bearings went flying and a leg went through the year and mother search for their children.
And a man walked by Cameron said did you see them they are did down there.
And it was a picture perfect day as Fox25 has been reporting it throughout the afternoon.
In the hours ahead and days ahead and no doubt weeks and months and years ahead we will learn a lot.
We're not gonna do a lot of guessing about what's happened here it's not a guess that somebody sick to separate explosions.
That doesn't happen.
