BOSTON â€” â€śI didnâ€™t comprehend what was going on.â€ť
Shelby Krider, 2003 Columbia City High School graduate, was across the street from the first explosion during the Boston Marathon Monday afternoon.
â€śMy friends and I go to the marathon every year,â€ť Krider said. â€śWe know a few people who are charity runners, and we were waiting for them to come to the finish line.â€ť
Krider said she was in the stands on Boylston Street, near the finish line, when she heard the blast.
â€śWhen the first one went off, it sounded like a cannon. It wasnâ€™t apparent that it was a bad situation,â€ť Krider said. â€śI wasnâ€™t sure what it was.
