NEW ORLEANS - At least 95 people from Louisiana took part in the Boston Marathon.
Danny Bourgeois of the Louisiana Marathon LLC in Covington was near the finish line before the blasts went off. He said the area was jammed with people when he was there.
Bourgeois called WWLTV from the Boston airport. He said everyone there was stunned.
"They turned all the audio up on all the TVs. People just huddled around in shock. Very quiet," Bourgeois said.
WWLTV has not received reports of any of the victims being from Louisiana.
