(NEWS CENTER)-- Colin Peddie, who is in the Cheverus High School Hall of Fame, was at his business, Marathon Sports, early this morning to get things ready for Marathon Monday. A few hours later, chaos ensued in Boston after multiple explosions. It is believed that one of the bombs came from a trash can, outside the front door of Peddie's store.
Peddie told NEWS CENTER that amazingly, none of his employees were injured in the explosion. "I can't remember a time when my employees were not out in front of my store on a Marathon Monday, but at the time of the explosion, they luckily were not."
