Two bombs went off at the finish line of the world-renowned Boston Marathon. Three people are reported dead and more than 130 injured. About 20 Islanders were running the event. CBC's Julie Cook and Pat Martel reached a few runners by phone. Former Islander, Julie Drury, crossed the finished line shortly before the explosions took place.
