NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Thousands of runners did not get to finish Monday’s Boston Marathon because twin bombs went off near the finish line around 2:50 p.m.
The blasts were detonated hours after the winners crossed the finish line.
“What I’m embarrassed to tell you now is that at first, you’re disappointed. You feel that somebody is taking away your right to celebrate your finish and you’re angry at the world. And then five or ten minutes later, the details come in and you realize how incredibly fortunate you are to be alive,” Burfoot told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond.
