It was a bright Monday morning of 15th April, 2013 when people of Boston were going to celebrate their Patriots’ Day. On this occasion, like every year a Marathon was organized which is the 117th Annual Boston Marathon where millions of participants were supposed to complete the finishing line in the Boylston Street. The place was ready so as the participants.

The audience was full of excitement as they can see their family, friend or relatives there in the marathon and were cheering them. Along with all such emotions and excitement, the marathon started. It was around 2.49 ETD when this enthusiasm turned into catastrophe when two serial bomb blasts happened near the finishing line. It was a so intense explosion that it engulfed around 190m, killing three people and injuring 260. Before anyone could understand what has happened, this disaster already filled that place with cries and pain.
