Just Steps Away, Art Chansky Recalls The Bombs At Boston Marathon

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Many people from Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Orange County were in Boston yesterday for the 117th Boston Marathon and were greatly affected by the disaster that took place. “It was a tragedy in the sense that people died, but it was more a heartbreak, I think, for a city and so many people who put probably the better part of the year into preparing,” says Art Chansky who was just steps away from one of the bombs that exploded.
