Boston Runners Wait For Arrest
Updated: Friday, April 19 2013, 07:55 AM EDT
There was a lot of confusing misinformation Wednesday in the Boston bombing case, with a number of outlets reporting this afternoon that a suspect had been arrested, then minutes later they said there was not.
To anyone following the ups and downs, it was a frustrating day, and perhaps especially for runners who there when it happened.
For those that - in the days before or during the race - stood or ran or walked next to victims who would be injured or killed, it was perhaps uniquely difficult.
"During the race, there's that camraderie, and you feel as though even the individuals that you don't know, there's some common bonds," said Dr. Tom Eisenhauer who followed the news in between surgeries and patient visits. "So there are ties to those individuals that were hurt and to the families that were injured."
