  • Looters hit marathon route after bombing.

    Online video appears to show spectators taking Boston Marathon gear after explosions

    BOSTON -

    Video posted online appears to show dozens of Boston Marathon spectators grabbing merchandise from a vacated staff tent in the aftermath of Monday's bombing.

    In the video, people can be seen taking what appear to be official blue and yellow shirts and jackets from boxes under and around a tent.

    Some have several in their hands as they walk out of the camera shot. Others can be seen putting the clothing into bags.

    Yahoo News reported that comments posted online suggest that the clothing was taken to help the injured spectators and runners.

    The twin bombs at the Boston Marathon killed three people and wounded more than 170 on Monday.

    No suspects have been identified at this time.

    People trying to sell items related to the tragedy may have a difficult time.

    According to Yahoo News, the online auction site eBay told them, "We are deeply saddened by the Boston tragedy and our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected. Out of respect for victims, eBay does not allow listings that graphically portray, glorify or attempt to profit from human tragedy or suffering."

    Roll Tide!!!!!
