Law enforcement officials are searching for who is responsible for detonating two explosives that killed three people and injured up to 125 near the finish line at the Boston Marathon.

Moments after two explosions occurred on Boylston Street Monday afternoon, panicked runners and spectators began fleeing Copley Square as police quickly cleared the area and locked down the Back Bay. 

“All of a sudden everyone turned around and was running in the opposite direction,” said Mary Bickford, 21, of Abington. Bickford was near the finish line when the bombs denoated. “All the runners, all the people cleared out, and police were going toward the finish line.”

Near the finish line, several survivors lay injured, some who had limbs torn off in the explosions. Others were crying as they took in the chaotic scene and first responders rushed in. 

Several victims, including an 8-year-old boy who died, were children. Childrens Hospital reported that those treated there included a 9-year-old girl, a 7-year-old boy, a 12-year-old, and a 2-year-old, the Boston Globe reported read more

Renovations Continue at Blackstone and Franklin Square Parks

A backhoe sits inside the gates at Franklin Square Park.

If you’ve walked by either Blackstone or Franklin Parks on Washington Street lately, you’ll notice the large fountains are gone, and in their place is a chain link fence and a backhoe. 

Fear not – the “please excuse our appearance” look in both parks will be gone by late spring, according to newly elected Friends of the Blackstone Square Parks president Courtney Troutman.

The $ 600K fountain restoration project is slated to be done by mid-May, said Troutman.

“With the recent snowstorms, they’ve been delayed in starting the excavation, but soon they will start soon, and that’s the big part of the project,” he said. 

The new pumping stations will be built underneath the new Blackstone and Franklin Squares restored fountains, and will serve to recycle water used within the fountain as opposed to running a city water line to it and sending water down the drain.  read more
