Just heard from 2 people, one an ST'er, one not - they're OK. It was scary, and plenty of people hurt, wide range of injuries.

Most everyone's been moved to Boston Commons.

Prayers for them all.

My sister was supposed to go in to see a friend of hers finish around that time, haven't heard from her yet so not sure if she went.

What in the world is wrong with people.

So sad for all those injured or worse. Actually, for all involved.

Dammit - I saw the title of this thread and I thought we were in for a "crapped their shorts" thread.

So sorry to hear about this.

WTF is wrong with people indeed!
