    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ali Hatfield was visiting Boston for the Boston Marathon. She shot this photo of the scene, writing, 'We had finished less than 15 minutes before. Just got to the family meeting area and were with our families when we heard the blasts. We knew it wasn't OK.'

    She says she's thankful for the help she's gotten.

    'We are locked out of our hotel right now. But we are staying with a very sweet lady who has opened her home to us.'
    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer

    A sweet woman opened her home to us and gave us food, shelter and beer! Our hotel is locked down. We can't get over there. So scary. Praying.
