Finishing his first Boston Marathon today, Joey McIntyre of New Kids On The Block narrowly escaped the explosions that went off near the finish line, which resulted in at least 40 injuries and two deaths (as of 4:45 p.m. Monday).
CBS Boston reported that the blasts happened around 2:50 p.m. EST outside Marathon Sports on Boylston Street. At 2:58 pm, Boston resident McIntyre assured friends, family and fans via Twitter that he was okay, but was sure there were many that had been injured in the incident.
There was an explosion by the finish line about 5 minutes after I finished- I’m ok but I’m sure there are many hurt.
