12 dead, dozens more injured after two explosions rock Boston marathon finish line
New York Post ^ | April 15, 2013 | POST STAFF REPORT

BOSTON — Two explosions shattered the euphoria of the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday, sending authorities out on the course to carry off the injured while the stragglers in the 26.2-mile trek from Hopkinton were rerouted away from the smoking site of the blasts.

A federal law-enforcement source told The Post there are at least 12 dead and twice as many injured. Fox News reported that Massachusetts General Hospital was treating 10 people with amputated limbs and all operating rooms were on hold.

Law-enforcement sources said at least the first explosion occurred in the lobby of the Fairmont Hotel.

"There were two bombs that exploded near the finish line in today's Boston Marathon," The Boston Marathon's official Facebook page read. "We are working with law enforcement to understand what exactly has happened."

“This changes everything [in New York],’’ one source told The Post. “Everyone’s on high alert. Our marathon was canceled in November. Who knows if that changed someone’s plans?’’

12 dead?

(Prayers up)

Usually on the onset of these tragic events - the count is lower than the final. I pray this is all there is.

they’re saying on tv that 2 were killed and 23 injured.. (though it’s hard to believe it was only 2 with the size and location of the explosion)

This is the only report I’ve seen with a body count that high. Not saying its wrong, I just haven’t seen it corroborated.

Just heard on the radio the police claim to have found a 3rd unexploded bomb in the neighborhood.

Just wait for Chrissy Mayhem Matthews to get his panties in a knot. I’m sure that’s where he’ll start!

At this point, what difference does it make?

Pretty Much. I read on the main thread Shep Smith said the blasts contained shotgun shells.

Thats code for White Redneck NRA Lovin’ Bitter Clingers.

Terrible act of violence.

So will MSNBC say it’s the Tea Party or the Aryan Brotherhood?
