    12 dead, dozens more injured after two explosions rock Boston marathon finish line

    12 dead, dozens more injured after two explosions rock Boston marathon finish line

    • From 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?’’

    In New York, the NYPD has ramped up its anti-terror efforts at landmarks and other potential terrorist targets “to make sure there’s no nonsense going on here,’’ a law-enforcement source said.
    Officers are scouring live feed from surveillance videos throughout the city to monitor possible events, the source said.
    NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said that the NYPD has deployed its Critical Respons Vehicles as well until more about the explosion is learned.

    Relatives of the victims of December’s school massacred in Newtown, Conn. were among those attending the race finish at a VIP area. It was not known of any of the relatives were among the casualties.
    A White House official said President Obama was getting updates on the apparent bombing.
    Competitors and race organizers were crying as they fled the chaos. Bloody spectators were being carried to the medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners.

    "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. Another thunderous explosion could be heard a few seconds later.
    Runner Laura McLean of Toronto said she heard two explosions outside the medical tent.

    Cherie Falgoust was waiting for her husband, who was running the race.
    ''I was expecting my husband any minute," she said. "I don't know what this building is ... it just blew. Just a big bomb, a loud boom, and then glass everywhere. Something hit my head. I don't know what it was. I just ducked."
    About half of the runners -- virutally all the elite competitors -- had completed the course when the twin explosions went off.
    It created a mad rush of bystanders, who frantically dashed away from the scene. Moments later, first reporters ran to the wounded, as their blood stained the Boston pavement.
    Smoke filled the previously crystal-clear sky and the sounds of sirens rang for blocks.

    AP
    Police clear the area at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon.
    Investigators have a suspect — a Saudi Arabian national — in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.
    Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.
    Fox News reported that the suspect suffered severe burns.
    It was not immediately clear why the man was hospitalized and whether he was injured in the attack or in his apprehension.
    The man was caught less than two hours after the 2:50 p.m. bombing on the finish line of the race, in the heart of Boston.

    In addition, Boston police have surveillance video of someone bringing multiple backpacks to blast site, according to CBS News.
    Police also confirmed that there was a third explosion, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. It was not immediately clear how much damage was done or whether it was related to the bombings at the marathon finish line.
    The library bombing occurred about 4:30 p.m. and more than a mile from the marathon.
    A law enforcement source confirmed to The Post that 12 people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in today's blast.
