All Boston Breakers players and staff are safe and accounted for following Monday’s explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, the team confirmed. Several Breakers players were in attendance of the event, where explosions near the finish line of the 26.2-mile race injured at least 100 people and killed at least three, including an 8-year-old.
“A lot of our players were at the Marathon today, but we have heard from all of them and they are safe,” read a tweet from the Breakers’ account on at 4:03 p.m. ET, just over an hour past the first explosion.
Many Breakers players in attendance tweeted about being safe, in response to the outpouring of inquiries they got. Those can be found on the Breakers’ Twitter timeline.
General Manager Lee Billiard tweeted that the Breakers’ office, located two miles from the explosion, would be closed on Tuesday.
