BOSTON, MA (FOX19) -
Dozens of local runners were in Boston to run the marathon when two explosions rocked the event.
Two explosions happened near the finish line of the Boston Marathon at about 2:50 p.m. ET Monday, nearly three hours after the first of the event's winners crossed.
"We had the windows open on the third floor looking over the finish line, and watching people kind of coming across the finish line, and you heard a huge explosion," said Greg Johnson.
Johnson is one of the runners from Cincinnati who was at the Boston Marathon. He was looking out his window at the Charlesmark Hotel when the explosions happened.
"I saw one person that had both his legs that were blown off. We saw several other people just severely injured. It was pretty gruesome," Johnson said in a phone call to store employees while our cameras were there.
Bob Roncker's Running Spot is the training home for some of these marathon runners. They had a group of about 20-25 runners at the marathon on Monday.
"Overall, from greater Cincinnati, northern Kentucky, there were probably 150 or more that qualified. Not everybody goes. We think there's about 25 from our specific training group," said store owner, Bob Roncker.
One of the shop's employees who works to coordinate training groups there says they had other runners close by the scene when the explosions happened.
"We had a runner who was in the Charlesmark Hotel who said he saw it, and we had a runner that was also heading back to the Charlesmark Hotel where she was staying that she couldn't get back that way because the police had already pushed everybody to go the opposite direction," said Joe Fung, who works at the Running Spot.
