ROMULUS, Mich. (WXYZ) - "There was a lot of bravery out there," said Tony Hobart of Novi as he talked to 7 Action News about seeing people rushing to help others, not knowing if another bomb would explode.
Hobart and several other runners arriving at Metro-Airport Tuesday talked about finishing the race and the chaos that ensued.
"I went to get my medal and I just saw this explosion," said Terry Carella.
Terry's husband Mike had been cheering her on and when he was walking to meet up with his wife, he heard the blast and thought it was a cannon.
Mike Carella says he thought to himself that the use of a cannon seemed like "poor planning" by marathon organizers. But it didn't take long for Carella to see people running, "yelling and crying. That's when he realized the sounds of a cannon were actually bombs exploding.
The Carellas say their hearts ache for the families of those who died and those who continue to fight to survive their injuries.
