A Cleveland Jewish man’s ability to finish the Boston Marathon in less than four hours helped save him from injuries, or worse, in the terrorist attack Monday
“I was in the hotel when the explosions went off, Kevin Goodman, 50, told the Cleveland Jewish News. “The explosions happened about an hour after I finished. I was in the hotel recovering (from the race). I went outside to see the sights. It was gruesome. A lot of blood and limbs.”
Goodman said he knew it was not a gas-line rupture as had first been reported. “I knew they weren’t fireworks,” he said. “I knew there was trouble. I can see the black plumes of smoke coming up to my room. I did go out and help until I was told to go back in (the hotel).
“It’s a tragic day for America and for the city.”
