Martin Richard Dead: Boy, 8, Dies In Explosion At Boston Marathon

Martin's mother, Denise, was hospitalized with "grievous injuries." She reportedly underwent surgery late Monday for an injury to her brain.

Martin's six-year-old sister, a first grader whose name was not made public, lost her leg in the blast.

All from the Boston neighborhood of Dorchester, they were all waiting for Martin's father to cross the finish line having run the Boston Marathon.

This is unimaginable tragedy for one family.

This certainly brings it all home and personalizes this tragedy.

Correction: the father was NOT running in the marathon. He was a spectator. He had run in previous Boston marathons.

On a related topic, why was the second thread on the bombings deleted?

I swear I read the headline as "Martian Boy Dead."

Cable news told us he ran out into the street to greet his father who was running in the race, and speculated that if he had stayed where he was he would not have died.

Milk it, guys. Truth be damned.
