On a Visit to Boston, KNBC Anchor Alycia Lane Reports From Bombing Scene

KNBC morning anchor Alycia Lane was interviewed by Brian Williams on NBC’s primetime special report Monday night. Lane was in Boston to watch a friend run the marathon and was eating lunch less than a block away from the finish line when the bombs exploded.

“We could feel the ground shake below us, and everything on our table shook,” Lane recalled. “Ten seconds later, a second blast hit and we looked outside and saw a plume of smoke up in the air. We saw the building across from the spectator stands, which was a mirrored tall office building, shaking. And that’s when panic struck everyone in that restaurant.”
