EXCLUSIVE: New pics from moments before, after blasts
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Photos sent to 7News by a viewer show the scene just before and right after the bombs went off on Boylston Street.
7News has provided these pictures to the FBI as they continue their investigation. They are looking at the pictures to see if it's possible it could be the second bomb.
In the first picture you can see a bag next to a mailbox and up against a barricade along the marathon route. In the second, which we have blurred because it is very graphic, there is no sign of the bag. The viewer who took the pictures says there may be an hour or more between when the first and second pictures were taken.
A different series of pictures sent to 7News by another viewer have been handed over to the FBI as well.
A man took the images from his office above Boylston Street and they show the moments right after one of the explosions.
You can see almost everyone is frozen, a many crouching on the ground, stunned or injured. But one man is acting very differently from everyone else. You can see he is running away from the scene.
Investigators talked to the man who took the pictures.
“One after another, you see this individual really fleeing from the scene, which is either for one or two reasons. So either he was badly burned and panicked, and fleeing, or he was fleeing for some other reason,” said the man who took the photos.
These are the kind of pictures the FBI is looking for as they gather information in their investigation.
