“They were probably planned explosions, we are identifying this as a crime scene,” said a police spokesperson to WBVC. “They will gather a tremendous amount of information.”
At least ten people have lost limbs, and so far two people have been confirmed dead.
The explosions are thought to be a terrorist attack, and the scene has since been evacuated.
The Boston Police Department told HollywoodLife.com, “There was a major explosion today at 2:50 EST. We do not have an official statement yet, but do know there were numerous injuries. We do not know if there were any fatal injuries at this time. We cannot at this time confirm if this was a terrorist attack.”
“I saw people’s legs blown off. Horrific. Two explosions. Runners were coming in and saw unspeakable horror,” tweeted NECN reporter Jackie Bruno.
“We were so close it was scary. Felt the force of the explosion. People were fleeing and victims were scattered.”
“My photog @JohnHammann and I are safe. But, we were very very close. Saw people on the ground with limbs missing. Awful.”
