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

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.
