As part of a special midnight airing of "Piers Morgan Live," that came amidst the chaos and confusion surrounding the bombings at the Boston Marathon, late Monday night former Olympic athlete Summer Sanders spoke with Piers Morgan on the phone.
Among the runners who crossed the finish line before the horrific incident that claimed the lives of three and injured over 100 people, Sanders recalled her feelings earlier in the day at the event:
"It was a magical day, it was a day I’d looked forward to, all of my fellow competitors have looked forward to it 27,400 or so of us," said Sanders. "When you’re a part of something like this you’re family."
"My heart is aching for everyone involved, anyone who was affected by this," continued Sanders about the tragic twin bombings that occured not long after she left the finish line. "My heart is aching for them and thinking of them."
Former Boston Police Commissioner Bill Bratton also spoke with Morgan on Monday evening and gave his thoughts on the tragic day. "It was truly a horrific day, said Bratton. "And also great heroism, watching [the] National Guard, police resources, some of the runners, emergency people rushing toward the event."
"Having stood on that route many times as a patrolman initially, said Bratton. "And eventually as police commissioner of the city of Boston, was very poignant for me and this brought back many memories of many times that I served at that marathon."
"It was just very, very tragic to watch it all."
