Study: Marathon Bombing triggered PTSD in children

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - A new study has found the Boston Marathon bombing may have triggered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in children.

Researchers found 11% of kids who were at the finish line that day, suffer from PTSD.

They say TV coverage of the events and witnessing the manhunt for the suspects in the days following the attack, may have also added to the stress.
