先不要哭 停一停 諗一諗

由今朝7時起我的Facebook便被波士頓馬拉松爆炸「炸板」。作為運動愛好者的我當然心噏,跑步無罪,為何參加者落得如此下場?

整個上午我的Whatsapp Group不停有朋友分享現場圖片, 其中有一張印象最心刻的是一名男子抱著女子的截圖,並附上男朋友在終點等候女友卻求婚不遂的感人故事。想也沒想就轉發了給遠在美國的男朋友, 他便笑我的眼淚被騙了,那名女子跟本沒有被證實死亡,而且對於社交平台不實的報導非常憤怒。

為求真相,我不停在互聯網搜尋受害者和亡者的資料。的確,過去三小時內各大國際傳媒(CNN,Huffington, Boston Globe, AP等)只是證實了三名亡者中8歲小朋友的身份,其他兩位的身份還不詳。又何來女朋友死了的故事?

就連CNN 上的 Caption也只用上 “A Man comforts a victim….”

再從這個 http://imgur.com/a/IuEDd 網站看到另一角度的照片,看到了女子的全身照,也看到她安然無恙自己爬起身的照片,我就更加迷惑。Fox 的即時更新tweet上寫:

[Update, 9:38 p.m. ET] Dr. Allan Panter, who was near the finish line waiting for his wife who was running the race, told CNN he was standing about 20 to 25 feet from the first blast. He said he treated victims on the street after the explosion.

“I saw at least six to seven people down next to me,” he said. “They protected me from the blast. One lady expired. One gentleman lost both his (lower) limbs. Most of the injuries were lower extremities. I could not figure out why the young lady had expired. I could not find any injury on her thorax.”

所以大家,先不要哭,停一停,諗一諗,當你說RIP的時候,也許她還健在….. 也許她看過圖片後也覺得可笑。

如果大家要真正祝福一對新人的話,確確實實有一對今天跑馬拉松後,途過一劫而成功結婚的新人。也許他們的愛同樣賺人熱淚。
