(ABC 6 News) -- A Rochester man was feet away and caught images of the explosions at the Boston Marathon on camera.

Ryan Hoyme was in Boston shooting video for a non-profit he volunteers for. He was across the street from the first explosion. Then, as he was recording, the second explosion happened just about 100 yards away.

"After that second one went off that's when everybody started going off in different directions. Then we were seeing bodies on the ground. This one guy had both of his legs blown off," says Hoyme.

Hoyme also says emergency crews were quick in their response. He's been interviewed by police and the FBI.
