Dozens of runners from Southern Minnesota are in Boston for the Boston Marathon.

We spoke with Jan van Deursen, who’s from Rochester, while he was at the airport after the explosions. He had already finished the marathon and was sitting in an underground tram when the explosions happened.

“When we got out it was all chaos because, police cars, fire trucks and ambulances were running to the scene. It had just happened,” said Van Deursen.

He said security at the airport was extremely amped up too.
