Malta runner captures explosion on GoPro camera


ALBANY, N.Y. - A Malta mother and runner of the Boston Marathon captured the first explosion on her GoPro camera strapped to her head while running toward the finish line of the race on Monday afternoon.

Jennifer Treacy, from Malta, was at the home stretch of the race when the first of two explosions went off. Jennifer's husband and two children were supposed to meet her at the finish line, but luckily her husband changed their plans.

Her mother in Las Vegas had been following her run online through electronic tags and became panicked when she heard the news and discovered that Jennifer had stopped just short of the finish line. Thankfully Jennifer and her family are fine.

This was Jennifer's first time running the Boston Marathon. She did not finish the race, despite the finish line in sight.

She has called the FBI to share the GoPro video with investigators.
