An hour after Michelle La Sala finished the Boston Marathon, a bomb went off, killing at least three people Monday.
La Sala went up to her hotel room after the race, when she heard a boom.
“I looked outside and went to the window and saw smoke, I saw people running left and right. That’s when I knew something bad happened,” she told FOX40 over Skype Monday.
La Sala is a Sacramento native who flew out to Boston with her fiance, and other members of the California International Marathon to partake in the race.
“This, for us, is just devastating,” La Sala said.
