One of the participants in the Boston Marathon says runners were warned they were “going to die” by a woman in downtown Boston two days before the twin bombings which killed three and injured more than 140 people.
“Mike Heiliger, 59, said a woman holding several bags was telling runners who were picking up their pre-race packages in downtown Boston on Saturday (April 13) that they were going to die if they participated in the event,” reports the SquamishChief.com.
“It was a little creepy because you can identify who the runners are and I heard her say to this runner two feet away from me that, ‘If you run tomorrow you’re going to die,’” said Heiliger, adding that the woman was holding two bags as if she had just got off a plane.
Heiliger called police to report the incident after the bombings took place.
Authorities in Boston have denied that there was any intelligence beforehand which warned of an attack, despite eyewitness Ali Stevenson insisting that police “must have known” about the bombing based on their behavior throughout the race.
According to Stevenson, a University of Mobile Cross Country Coach, runners were told not to be alarmed on the morning of the race as police conducted an “exercise” involving bomb sniffing dogs and positioned spotters on rooftops.
“Evidently, I don’t believe they were just having a training exercise, they must have known,” Stevenson told Local15 News. “They must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in.”
