The victim was 64.

      Oh no! :(

      Went by the area and then there were reports that two people may have died, so I went over to the Parkway firehouse to listen to the scanner and see Chelsea, Melrose, Everett, and Boston covering it. Heard then the chief said there were no known injuries/fatalities so I decided to walk over to the actual scene. It was amazing how many responders were crammed in on all the surrounding streets, it gave a whole new appreciation for the logistics that news reports and pictures just don't do justice for.

      Sad to hear someone did die, though. Kind of wish I hadn't been gawking now that I know. :(
