None of the Montana runners participating in the Boston Marathon were injured when two explosions rocked the area near the finish line, but several were nearby.
Rocky Mountain College cross country coach Alan King was eating lunch with his wife and son about a block from the finish line at the time of the explosions Monday afternoon. He says they watched the aftermath in disbelief and horror.
Registered nurse Nancy Iverson of Billings was nearing the finish line. She stopped to offer assistance at the medical tent, but was urged to get to safety.
Hamilton runner Dean Jordan was waiting for his fiancee to finish when he heard the blast. He says he and his fiancee both called his mother and were able to confirm the other was safe.
