This was posted shortly after the explosion became news, and at the time I thought the location was an ordinary place set out for humans. Its a
rooftop, but has a clear fence around it, and my impression is that people probably hang out there all the time.
Especially if they wanted to get a view of the marathon.
So, IMHO, person caught at an ordinary place.
Edit - google maps shows this view of the rooftop.
I've put the location of the person as the red circle...
To the lower right is Boylston Street where the marathon is being held and the bombs went off.
Given that the photo was taken slightly after the second bomb, which went off 10 seconds after the first, then it is entirely possible that the person
heard the first bomb, started to walk towards the direction of Boylston St, and was photographed 11 seconds later.
Remember, they're not running away (like after having thrown it off a roof), they're walking towards it after its already gone off.
