Coming Sunday: The Panters tell their story

Read the account of a Gainesville couple who were at the scene of the Boston bombing

POSTED: April 19, 2013 7:50 p.m.

Theresa Panter was a regular runner in the Boston Marathon. Her husband, Allan, was in town to support her. As she near the end of the race, Allan took his place near the finish line.

Then two explosions, 12 seconds apart.

Allan, an emergency physician, jumped into the action, doing what he was trained to do – help people in trauma. But for sometime after the explosion, the Panters were separated, neither knowing whether the other was safe.

In a wide-ranging interview Friday with The Times, the Panters recounted the excitement that marked the beginning of the day and the fear that gripped them before it was over.

Read their account in Sunday’s edition of The Times.
