Boston.com producer Steve Silva: "I did see a gentleman with his leg severed off at the knee ... it was just a horrific, horrific scene"

Amidst a tragic day in Massachusetts which saw a bombing in Boston leave three people dead – including an eight-year-old boy – and more than 100 people injured, on Monday "Piers Morgan Live" invited Steve Silva to share his unique first-hand perspective of a day that will live in infamy.

A sports producer in Boston, the video Silva captured Monday is some of the most dramatic and compelling that has been seen to this point:

Joining Piers Morgan live, the native of Fall River, Mass., and University of Massachusetts alum, explained how it developed:

"Right at 2:50 p.m., just as I'm shooting straight on, off to the right hand side of me, on Boylston, right at the corner of Exeter and Boylston, was this loud, thud explosion and you just saw the smoke shoot straight up in the air," he said. "You knew it was something and as we all, a few of us started running toward it, we heard the second explosion probably within 15 seconds later, another block up the street on the corner of Boylston and Fairfield Street. Then we knew something was horribly wrong."

Speaking live from Boston, Silva further detailed the horrific images he saw first-hand: FULL POST

"The Boston Marathon has endured two world wars and may other things," said Treseler. "I am quite sure that there will be a Boston Marathon next year, but for certain, the Boston Marathon has been changed forever."

Bill Iffrig, subject of iconic "Boston Globe" photo: "The shock waves hit my whole body...my legs just started jittering around...I knew I was going down"

Update: Since the conducting of this interview, "Sports Illustrated" has selected Tlumack's photo – featuring a fallen Iffrig – as the cover for it's upcoming issue.

As a tragic bombing in Boston leaves three people dead – including an eight-year-old boy – and more than 100 injured, on Monday "Piers Morgan Live" invited a collection of eyewitnesses and experts to share their individual insights and context.

As hundred of runners approached the finish line of the world famous Boston Marathon, a deafening explosion sent the event, and the day, into chaos.

In position to capture his traditional celebratory photos, John Tlumacki instead snapped an image that conveys an entirely different emotion:

Joining Piers Morgan, the "Boston Globe" photographer described the circumstances that lead to his picture:

"I was focused on a couple children coming over the finish line. And then the blast occurred, and everybody was just screaming," he explained.

"That runner who you're describing fell in front of me and then the Boston police officers that were near him started drawing their guns. It was just a panic on people's faces."

The gentleman to whom Tlumacki refers is Bill Iffrig, a 78-year-old veteran of 45 marathons. He too talked live with the host, explaining the course of events from his perspective: FULL POST
