Witness to History: Boston Marathon Bombing
The April 15, 2013 terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon finish line rocked the nation and put Boston on high alert. Boston police officers, firefighters, and EMS rushed to help the hundreds of wounded bystanders. Fearing another attack, law enforcement created a multi-agency command center within hours of the bombing, and the Boston FBI field office took charge of the investigation. The five-day manhunt ended just outside Boston in suburban Watertown, Massachusetts.
