In an unprecedented turn of events at the annual Boston Marathon, 2 separate explosions occurred simultaneously as the runners were crossing the finish line of the historic 26 mile race. A third explosion was heard in the distance an hour after the initial bomb blasts. FBI and Boston PD have located other incendiary devices and are in the process of disarming them. Both runners and spectators were victims, with witnesses describing the site as a bloody mess. One witness claims to have seen a disconnected limb fly past her head. Reeling from shock, the town of Boston is on high alert as the catastrophe unfolds. Not ready to call it a terrorist attack, officials have remained tight lipped as they conduct their investigation.
