TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia family is back home on Tybee Island after witnessing the bomb explosions at yesterday's Boston Marathon.

Tim Seyden says his wife had just finished the race when he saw the first bomb explode. He and his three boys were at the finish line, about 100 yards from the blast. Seyden says he knew immediately something was wrong and grabbed his boys to leave the area. They met up with Seyden's wife a short time later.

The family returned to Georgia on Tuesday after taking an early morning flight out of Boston.

Seyden says law enforcement officers were stopping travelers as they moved through security and to the gates to ask if anyone had seen anything the day before, or had any photos taken near the blast site.
