NEW: CU Participants At Boston Marathon Are Safe
BOSTON (FILED at 12:25 p.m.  4/16/13)--While credit unions maintained a presence at yesterday's Boston Marathon, no credit union representatives were reported injured as a result of the explosions that tore through the finish line of the race on Monday, killing at least two people and injuring dozens more.

Several credit union representatives were participating and volunteering in the historic marathon as part of the Credit Union Kids at Heart fund raising for Children's Hospital through Eascorp. All of the runners were identified and determined to be safe.

Federal officials said authorities were questioning a Saudi national who was taken to the hospital with injuries from the scene (Los Angeles Times April  15). Authorities were also seeking a Penske truck leaving the scene.
