Bowling Green Man Finished Boston Marathon 25 Minutes Before Explosion

Bowling Green's Grant Cline spoke to Joe Corcoran about his experiences at the Boston Marathon Monday.

Grant Cline of Bowling Green says Monday's race was his first, and will be his last, Boston Marathon.

Cline had completed the race less than half an hour before two explosions rocked the finish line area as he was looking for his wife at the family waiting area. Cline, a Fed Ex driver, spoke to WKU Public Radio hours after the explosions.

"Twenty-five minutes after I finished, all of this starts to go down. You've got families that have been affected forever, two or three that have lost their lives. It's been an incredible day," Cline said.

Cline said after he found his wife Wendy unharmed their thoughts turned to those who had been killed and injured. He called the blasts an "evil thing."
