We certainly hope she's correct.

The Boston Marathon tragedy has left many in distress, 176 wounded and 3 dead, and with more details beginning to unravel, investigators now think that the bombs were 6-liter pressure cookers hidden in backpacks.

According to reports, one of the bombs contained metal and ball bearings, while another was jam packed with nails.

Law enforcement officials are saying that the explosives were dubbed as low, which means they traveled under 3,300 feet per second and were not strong enough to create a blast wave, but were strong enough to blast the ammo from long distance.

Boston Marathon Tragedy: 3 Confirmed Dead & 154 Injured

The aftermath of the Boston Marathon tragedy is far from pretty.

Reports are now confirming a total of 3 people dead, which includes an 8-year-old boy, and over 150 people hospitalized with at least 17 in critical condition and 41 in serious condition. At least eight of the wounded individuals are children.

Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Albert Pendleton, who was helping out at the race's medical tent said that the tragedy was "basically like the bomb took out he legs of everybody. It was horrific," and considering that ball bearings were removed from wounded patients, a terrorism export is suggesting that the bombs were created to explode before they reached their target.
