Three people were killed in the dual explosions at the Boston marathon on April 15, and we can now name the second victim as 29 year old Krystle Campbell from Medford, Massachusetts. So sad.
Krystle Campbell, 29, has been named as the second person who will killed in the Boston Marathon explosions on April 15. Krystle, who was an employee at American Food Systems, lived in Arlington, Massachusetts, and was watching the marathon with a friend when she was killed. How awful. Read on for all the details.
Krystle Campbell Is Named As Second Victim Of Boston Explosions
Krystle was watching the marathon with a friend — who is in critical condition in the hospital — when she was killed by the two explosions that occurred seconds apart, her grandmother Lillian Campbell told The Boston Globe.
Krystle had just moved to the town a short time ago, and she was helping her grandmother through an illness.
Krystle worked at the American Food Systems, and before that she worked as a catering manager in Jaspar White’s Summer Shack. She studied at the University of Massachusetts Boston, and attended both Medford High School and Somerville High School.
How awful. Krystle’s grandmother and family are in our thoughts.
Martin Richard was the first victim identified in the bombing.
Martin, an 8-year-old third grader, was standing with his mother Denise Richard and sister, 6, when bombs hidden in bins exploded within 12 second of each other, according to The Boston Globe.
Before the explosions, Martin gave his dad a hug as he approached the finish line. When Martin ran back to his mother, the first bomb exploded. Reports claim that his mother was seriously injured — she underwent surgery for an injury on her brain — and his sister lost her leg in the blast.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are you sad for Krystle and Martin’s family?
