MA graduate near Boston Marathon explosions
BOSTON — A Mount Ayr graduate was only three blocks away from where two crude bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon Monday — killing three and injuring at least 140 people.
Dr. Sharon (Pool) Smally, 1971 graduate of Mount Ayr High School, was at the Boston Marathon watching her daughter Allyson Smally compete. Allyson finished about 15 to 20 minutes prior to the bombs exploding Monday afternoon.
“She called me after the race,” Sharon said. “She was cold and tired, so I started walking down Boylston Street — where the explosions occurred — toward the family meeting area. But, the street was packed so I made the decision to get off Boylston, go through a department store and get on another street.
