The bombings in Boston on Monday took an unimaginable toll on one of the Dorchester neighborhood's most beloved families – taking the life of 8-year-old Martin Richard and seriously wounding his mother and sister.

Martin died from his injuries. His sister Jane, 7, lost a leg, while their mother Denise had surgery for a brain injury, WHDH reported. A third child, an older son, was reportedly not injured.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Bill Richard said, "My dear son Martin has died from injuries sustained in the attack on Boston. My wife and daughter are both recovering from serious injuries. We thank our family and friends, those we know and those we have never met, for their thoughts and prayers. I ask that you continue to pray for my family as we remember Martin. We also ask for your patience and for privacy as we work to simultaneously grieve and recover. Thank you."
