Mayhem and confusion have spread through Boston on Monday afternoon after two explosions went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Reports have ranged from accidental explosions to the possibility that ball bearings may be rolling around in the streets.
According to a Fox News Live report, a mysterious package was left at the at the Mandarin Hotel. Another report suggests that the explosions occurred at different times, suggesting a purposeful detonation.
As our very own Tara Dodrill just reported, one man was heard shouting, “All my God … they are dead” while staring at several bodies beneath a barrier.
While reports are still flooding in, we took to Instagram to find some of the on-the-ground photos being taken by Boston Marathon onlookers.
We will report more about the explosions as details are released. In the meantime, here are several of the photos and voices of support from the popular photo sharing network.
