Pandemonium broke out at the Boston Marathon as two big explosions ripped near the finish line on Boylston Street near Copley Square just before 3 p.m. The video of the moment shows some runners falling to the ground and others running away. You hear the screams of bystanders as white smoke billowed from the point of impact. There are reports of blood everywhere and people with severe injuries. The Boston Police now say two were killed and there are 23 injured. We don’t know who or what was responsible for this. We will find out soon enough. The Post continues to report on developments. In the meantime, pray for the injured. Pray for Boston.
