what does "and seats were found for them."mean?
Amazingly, Liz and Marie were at the hospital when Johnson pulled out, and seats were found for them. At the Mart they had observed the questioning of a youth by two policemen. "Do you suppose he's the one who did it?" Liz asked vaguely. Soon afterward their attention was attracted by a woman across the street with a transistor radio glued to her ear. Suddenly she screamed, and her expression told them everything. Even Liz realized that there would be no speech now.
