BOSTON (KDKA) – KDKA-TV’s Andy Sheehan had crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon just minutes before the blasts.

Andy was walking shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of other runners when the first blast shook the street and buildings.

He turned around in time to see a second blast, and smoke coming from the finish line area.

That’s when Andy says he knew in his bones, that it was a terrorist attack.


His thoughts then turned to his 15-year-old son who was with his brother and sister-in-law.

After looking for them for an hour, Andy was able to reconnect with them at their hotel.

Andy will remain in Boston, and provide continuing coverage of the bombings for KDKA.
