WA Man Has Close Call In Boston Explosion; Is Ok
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — A 78-year-old Washington state man running his third Boston Marathon was near the finish line when he was knocked down by one of two bomb blasts. Bill Iffrig of Lake Stevens told The Herald that he heard a noise yesterday and found himself on the ground. He says he ended up with a scrape on his knee, and that a race official helped him to his feet. He was caught in a Boston Globe photo that quickly went viral. Iffrig walked across the finish line and another half-mile to his hotel.
