BOSTON -- The Boston Marathon runner seen on video crumpling to the ground as an explosion goes off near the finish line Monday was Bill Iffrig, 78, of Lake Stevens. "It was only five feet away from me," Iffrig told The Everett Herald in the phone interview from Boston, adding that his only injury was a scrape on his knee. "It was really loud."
