KANSAS CITY, Missouri (AP) – A suburban Kansas City woman says a photo of her daughter taken at the Boston Marathon is a creepy reminder of how close family members were to a bombing that killed three people and injured more than 150 others.

Tina Bradshaw of Liberty, a Missouri State University junior, was back at school when someone sent her a link to a photo of the two suspected bombers only feet away as she ran past.

The two brothers accused of bombing the marathon were clearly visible in the crowd in the Associated Press photo.

She forwarded it to her mother, Jennifer Bradshaw, who was a spectator at the marathon. Tina Bradshaw crossed the finish line only 10 minutes before a pair of explosions ripped through the crowd.
