Comfort dogs visit Boston bombing victims

Comfort dogs visit Boston bombing victims, In a time of complete chaos and terror there is little anyone can do to truly comfort the victims of the bombings that took place at the 117th running of the Boston Marathon. However, according to an article published on April 21 by Mail Online, a group of comfort dogs recently visited many of the victims who are still in the hospital recovering for the injuries they received in the terror attacks.

The group of five golden retrievers are said to be the same comfort dogs that visited the families affected by the December school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut that killed 26 people including 20 children.

There were three people killed and more than 170 injured during the April 15 bombings of the Boston Marathon. The victims of this tragedy were 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, 8-year-old Martin Richard, and 23-year-old Lingzi Lu. In addition to MIT Patrol Officer Sean Collier, who was shot and killed on Thurdays, April 18 by the same people believed to have carried out the Boston Marathon bombings.

It took authorities less than a week to identify two suspects who are believed to be responsible for this crime. The two men who are believed responsible are 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev and his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The eldest died after a shootout with police on Thurdays, April 18, and the other was captured after an exhaustive manhunt and standoff with authorities.
