Hooksett runner: 'It was like all hell broke loose'


Hooksett resident and Boston Marathon runner Jeff Silver had finished the race and was getting ready to drive home when he came across the hellish scene at the finish line he had crossed not long before.

"We turned onto the street, and there were police and ambulances everywhere," said Silver. "It was like all hell broke loose."

Silver only figured out what happened when he questioned another driver caught in the traffic.

"He said it was a couple of explosions, and we were like 'Oh my God,'" said Silver.

Silver checked in with all of the runners in his running club, and stated that they were all "fine." One of the club's runners who was a spectator at the marathon "did get hit," according to Silver, but she's ?"recovering and she's going be fine."?
