One family will never be the same following the two bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon on Monday.
The 8-year-old boy waiting at the finish line for his dad to cross was one of three killed by the bombs that were hidden in trashbags.
The young boy has been identified as Martin Richard by Boston's WHDH TV and other sources. This is a facebook photo of Martin.
The boy's mother and sister were critically injured. The mom reportedly underwent surgery for a brain injury late Monday afternoon. Our prayers are with the family today and with all effected by Monday's tragic event.
Here is a good Re-Cap of the Tragic Day:
Sadly, family members of victims in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings were also attending the Boston Marathon. The group had VIP seats near the finish line where the explosions occurred. None were reported injured.
