The family of Jacob Perez, from Ben Bolt, says he is also safe.
Incarnate Word Coach Donny Patterson spoke with our Tyler Garrett a short time ago about his experience at the Boston Marathon where at least 2 people are dead and 28 injured after 2 explosions.
Patterson tells us just minutes before the first blast his wife was standing in the exact spot where it went off. She had moved to another location when the second occurred.
Patterson says he felt the ground shake a few minutes after he finished his own run.
The couple is now stuck in the subway as everyone headed to leave the area. Authorities shut down the subway out of concern of another incident.
