Boston, MA (WDAY TV) -- 2 people are dead, and dozens injured, after 2 bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon today.

3-hours after the winners crossed the finish line, a bomb went off, on the Northside of Boylston Street. Another bomb went off just a few seconds later.

One runner says they saw at least 2-dozen people with serious injuries, including some with missing limbs. The blasts shattered the end of the race. It sent authorities out on the course to carry away the injured, while the slower runners were re-routed away from the smoking site.
