"Video of the explosion as it happened. There it is, just while we want to warn you…"

The exact moment one of the explosions happened near the finishing line of the Boston Marathon. American networks report on this news.

"Wow. That was one, they were saying there were two. We're seeing this for the first time, looks like it happened in front of, I believe, marathon sport store. And there was a second explosion, I think we're just hearing. And... what you can definitely hear the screams and the panic of the people there."

Interesting words: finishing line (line where a race ends), scream (shout).
