New security plans unveiled for Boston Marathon


BOSTON - Organizers are detailing their intensive new security plan ahead of next month’s Boston Marathon.

Last year, bombs went off near the finish line, killing three people and wounding 260 others.

Police and emergency management officials have been working on the new plan for months. This year, there will be more police, additional surveillance cameras, and tightened rules for runners and spectators.

Charlotte native Nicole Gross was one of the many injured; both of her legs were broken. Channel 9 has followed her recovery since the bombing. Gross says she hopes to participate in the 5k portion of the race.

The Boston Marathon is scheduled for April 21.
