Carter had crossed the finish line about seven minutes before the first explosion happened. She said when she turned around all she saw was "a ball of smoke" after what sounded like a cannon.

Amid the "mass hysteria" Carter worked her way to the family gathering area where husband Kevin, as well as Martin and his wife, were waiting for her.
