A Washington state man was finishing the Boston Marathon when two bombs exploded in the packed streets near the finish line on Monday.

Bill Iffrig of Lake Stevens is seen in video footage, falling to the ground when the first blast occurred.

Iffrig, 78, was running in his third Boston Marathon, the Everett Herald reports.

He had a scraped knee from the fall but was otherwise uninjured.

More than 100 people were injured and at least two killed after bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
