An orthopedic surgeon who witnessed the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday afternoon described the horrific incident to Al Jazeera English.
“It looked like an [improvised explosive device] from Afghanistan,” he said.
Many victims had legs or feet blown off by the explosions, while others suffered open fractures. The surgeon from Florida said he also saw children who were killed or wounded, including a boy who appeared to be about 3-years-old.
“It is beyond me how people can do that to other people,” he added. “I mean, those people just came out to have a good day, and they were enjoying it and having a good time, and then for that to happen is horrible.”
Two explosive devices detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon around 2:50 p.m., injuring at least 100 people and killing two others. One of those killed was reportedly only 8-years-old.

GOP senator flops hard when CNN’s Tapper asks him to name one case where Trump cared about foreign corruption
Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) on Friday furiously tried to deflect when CNN's Jake Tapper asked him to name one instance other than Ukraine where President Donald Trump held up foreign aid to a country because he was concerned it was not fighting corruption.
During an interview, Tapper asked Lankford if he agreed that Trump's primary concern in holding up military assistance to Ukraine was because he sincerely wanted to root out corruption in the country rather than urge it to investigate his political opponents.
"Yes, I do actually think he's concerned about corruption and the people of Ukraine," the senator replied.
Fox & Friends audience revolts after Geraldo Rivera hammers ‘diminished’ Rudy Giuliani
"Fox & Friends" hosts were shocked by Geraldo Rivera's blunt assessment of Rudy Giuliani -- who had appeared on the show a short time earlier.
President Donald Trump's attorney spun wild claims about Joe Biden's dealings in Ukraine, as the Senate considers impeachment charges involving Giuliani's own actions there and the president's pressure scheme against its government, and Rivera expressed shock and alarm.
Lindsey Graham exposed as ‘the most shameless man’ in US politics in brutal supercut video
The Intercept's Mehdi Hasan has put together a brutal video showing the two dramatically different faces worn by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) before President Donald Trump got elected, and after he got elected.
Hasan, who labels Graham "the most shameless man in American politics," argues that Graham has made by far the most dramatic change of any Trump-skeptical Republican since the president's victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016.
"There's no position he won't abandon, no U-turn he won't perform, no lie that he won't tell," he said.
Hasan then proceeds to show footage of Graham scolding reporters for calling Trump a "kook" or a racist -- before cutting to footage of Graham denouncing Trump in exactly those terms.
