Once again the United States has experienced a terrorist attack. This time the bombings occurred during the Boston Marathon. Multiple bombs detonated within seconds of each other near the finish line. A third bomb is reported to have also exploded nearby at the JFK Library.
Three other unexploded bombs have been reported found by Boston authorities. Two at another intersection near the marathon route and one outside of Boston proper.
As of the time of this article at least 2 people have been killed with up to 50 injuries (10 of which are reported to be amputations). I’m sure as the day goes on we will continue to receive updated reports of fatalities and injuries.
Good work by local EMS, Fire, and Police have helped transport and treat many others affected by these blasts. While I try not to be political with this blog I hope this tragic attack prompts those in charge of the purse strings to reevaluate cuts to EMS and other Public Safety organizations.
