    I sometimes wonder whatever became of the guy who shit his pants at the marathon. Like, how does he go on with life after suffering that humiliation?

    Was it a "special" marathon?

    I'm seeing lots of people in wheelchairs being wheeled away.

    BOSTON —Two explosions have been reported near the Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street as thousands of people gathered for the race, and there are reports of injuries.


    The blasts happened at about 2:50 p.m. near the intersection of Boylston and Exeter streets. Witnesses said several victims lost limbs, and the area was being evacuated.

    The first explosion happened across from the Lenox Hotel and the second blast was about 15 seconds later, witnesses said.

    Many of the injured appeared to be spectators who gathered for the 117th running of the race.

    NewsCenter 5's Sean Kelly said the impact of the explosions could be felt blocks away.

    The victims were being taken to Massachusetts General Hospital.

    NewsCenter 5 and WCVB.com will have more information when it becomes available.
