According to uk.dailymail an eight-year-old boy waiting at the finish line to give his father a hug was among three people killed when two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon and left 176 people injured in the worst terrorist atrocity since 9/11.

Martin Richard died after the first of two bombs hidden in trash cans were detonated within 12 seconds of each other during the Patriots’ Day bank holiday yesterday, sending terrified runners and spectators fleeing for their lives and leaving a scene of ‘unspeakable horror’.

Neighbors told MailOnline about the moment his father, Bill Richard, returned home still wearing hospital scrubs on Monday night and looking like the ‘walking dead’ as he struggled to come to terms with his son’s death and injuries suffered by his wife and six-year-old daughter.

As well as Martin, two other victims – including a woman in her 20s – lost their lives in the blasts.

Boston police closed off the city as a ‘danger zone’ as witnesses described seeing body parts flying through the air and shoes that ‘still had flesh in them’ in an attack that has sent shock waves across the world.
