Wayzata Boston Marathon Runner to KSTP: 'Sounded Like a Cannon'

'I just wanted to get out of there,' Susan Vickerman said.

A runner from Wayzata told KSTP about her experience very close to the explosions on Monday:

Susan Vickerman of Wayzata also ran in the marathon today. She was about half a block from the finish line when the bombs went off.

“It sounded like a cannon,” she said. “Everyone was stunned and no one knew what to do. Some people did what I did and just got out of there as fast as possible. There was a sense of disbelief, and some people started crying. I just wanted to get out of there because I thought there might be more.”
