Rome, April 15 - The powerful explosion from the
bombs at the Boston Marathon Monday afternoon local time sounded
like a cannon shot, long-time Italian marathon runner Salvatore
Giansiracusa told ANSA.
"Being from Rome, I thought it was the noon cannon (that
goes off daily from Gianicolo Hill)...but I thought, what are
they celebrating? Then I heard the second bang...it was
terrifying," Giansiracusa said.
Giansiracusa was one of 50 runners from the Italian 'Born
to Run' organization who flew to Boston, Massachusetts for the
annual race.
After the second bomb detonated, Giansiracusa said that
he saw "people running around a corner...then a woman fell to
the ground. At that point I saw people fleeing and I knew what
was going on".
