Senate and House of Representatives honour Boston victims
The US Senate and House of Representatives pay their respects to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. SOUNDBITE (English): Cheryl Frasier, Marathon runner "My mother-in-law called when we were at about mile 19 and let us know what happened. She was sitting in the bleachers when they went off, and we were asking some folks on the side, some officials. They hadn't had word yet, and at 21 they stopped us. There was just this wall of yellow jackets. And they were really great. The Red Cross was there giving us blankets and Gatorade and power bars, and what was even better was some of the houses opened up to the runners - come inside, get warm, have something to eat." Senator Harry Reid, Majority Leader, on Senate floor UPSOUND (off camera) "The Senate will observe a moment of silence" SOUNDBITE (English): Rep. John Boehner, House Speaker "The House will now observe a moment of silence in memory of the victims of today's attack in Boston." ++USER GENERATED CONTENT: UGC cannot be absolutely verified.
