Update On The Boston Bombing, 8 year Old Boy Killed While Waiting To Hug Dad At Finish Line.

8 year Old Martin Richard.
A doctor at a hospital where victims of the Boston Marathon explosions were taken says an X-ray of one victim he saw showed what could be small ball bearings throughout the injury. Three people were killed and more than 140 injured by two explosions just seconds apart near the finish line Monday
Detectives last night raided a home in Boston in connection with the explosions at yesterday's marathon which killed three and injured more than 150. Authorities are still unsure who was behind the blasts - which have been described as small, home-made devices - but have a number of leads which they are following. Agents, including the FBI and bomb disposal officers, swooped on an apartment in the suburbs of the city after a man, said to be of Saudi origin, was arrested at the scene. The 20-year-old suspect is under police guard in hospital, where he is being treated for burns and shrapnel wounds to his legs, after he was tackled to the ground by a civilian who believed he was acting suspiciously. An eight-year-old boy waiting at the finish line to give his father a hug was among three people killed and more than 152 injured when two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon in the worst terrorist atrocity since 9/11. Martin Richard died after bombs hidden in trash cans were detonated within 12 seconds of each other during the Patriots’ Day bank holiday yesterday, sending terrified runners and spectators fleeing for their lives and leaving a scene of 'unspeakable horror'. Boston police closed off the city as a 'danger zone' as witnesses described seeing body parts flying through the air and shoes that 'still had flesh in them' in an attack that has sent shockwaves across the world.
Seventeen of the injured are in a critical condition and CNN reported that at least 10 victims have needed amputations. At least eight of the wounded are thought to be children, including a two-year-old boy who suffered a head injury. Another was 11-year-old Aaron Hern, of Martinez, California, who was hit by flying shrapnel in his thigh as he waited for his mother to cross the finish line. He is being treated at Boston Children's Hospital and is expected to undergo further surgeries. Our hearts prayers and thoughts are with America. Read More Here
