Amgen Lab Explodes; Ducks Are Dying in Redwood City; Mom Turns in Purse-Snatching Son

Plus, East Bay woman to revisit Boston and finish her marathon

Amgen Lab Explodes; Ducks Are Dying in Redwood City; Mom Turns in Purse-Snatching Son

By Genevieve Bookwalter/Patch Editor

Today we have employees hurt and a lab damaged in an explosion at Amgen, ducks dying in a popular Redwood City pond, and a mom who turned in her son for stealing an elderly woman’s purse.

We also have this heartwarming story from  Walnut Creek Patch, about a local woman’s plans to return to Boston to finish the marathon that was, of course, struck by the killer bomb attack:

In April, Erica Robertson is going to complete what two terrorist bombers wouldn't let her finish last year.

Robertson was four miles from the end of the 2013  Boston Marathon when she and other runners were stopped because of the explosion of two bombs at the finish line of the historic race.

Robertson did accomplish one goal in her curtailed run.

She raised $11,000 for medical research into  Rett syndrome, a disease that has afflicted her 7-year-old daughter, Avery.
