Video of the explosion:
Oh, this is not good. Explosions were reported near the scene of the Boston Marathon just now — for a live feed of the video, http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013-boston-marathon-finish-line/

The reports say that there are injuries near the finish line — there are lots of Entertainment pros down there doing the video and production, let’s hope they’re all safe. Please let them all be safe.
From CBC News:
Two explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon have resulted in injuries.
Bloody spectators were being carried Monday to the medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners. Police wove through competitors as they ran back toward the course.
“There are a lot of people down,” said one man, whose bib No. 17528 identified him as Frank Deruyter of North Carolina.
He was not injured, but marathon workers were carrying one woman, who did not appear to be a runner, to the medical area as blood gushed from her leg. A Boston police officer was wheeled from the course with a leg injury that was bleeding.
About three hours after the winners crossed the line, there was a loud explosion on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line.
Sorry for the Fox News link for video, that’s all there was when I posted. CBS is reporting missing limbs, blood, deaths, and major injuries. Fuck.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL OUT THERE, brothers and sisters.
