As you can see from above images  the 78-year-old Boston runner named Bill Iffrig, of Lake Stevens, lying in the marathon road.

He said to The Herald of Everett, "It was only 5 feet away from me," he added, "It was really loud."

The old man was so scared from the Boston Marathon explosions experience, he told that the incident was a close one.

According to his son Mark Iffrig, "he was tracking his father's race progress online and didn't realize what had happened until he went on Facebook to post about his dad finishing the race. He quickly turned on the TV and called his dad," he told to The Associated Press.
