Two runners dead at Philadelphia marathon
« on: November 20, 2011, 06:15:30 PM »
The annual marathon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was the scene of shock as two runners died during the event. The names of the individuals were not yet released as the CNN article was posted.

From the article:
Melanie Johnson, executive director of the Philadelphia Marathon Race Weekend, said in a statement that race organizers "are deeply saddened" by the deaths.

The two runners' identities were not immediately disclosed, as officials were still working to notify their families, according to Johnson. That information will be provided to the public "as it becomes available," she added.
