A two year-old boy found bloodied and alone during the Highland Park shooting on Monday and lifted from underneath his father is an orphan after both his parents were killed in the attack.

Aiden McCarthy lost his mother Irina McCarthy and father Kevin McCarthy after being separated from them during the chaos of Monday’s shooting.

The article goes on to state the following:

Aiden was unharmed and has been placed in the care of his grandparents.


At least seven people so far are dead from the horrific massacre, when 21-year-old Bobby Crimo opened fire on the parade crowd from atop a downtown building.  About 30 others were wounded, some critically.

Aiden’s parents, Irina McCarthy, 35, and Kevin McCarthy, 37, were both killed in the massacre.

Little Aiden was found by Lauren Silva, 38, of Deerfield, and her boyfriend, who were just entering a restaurant along the parade route when they heard the shooting.

Aiden was found underneath his father, who was shot in the leg.  Others were trying to stop the father’s bleeding, so they took the child into a parking garage.

“He kept asking if mom and dad are going to come back soon,” Silva said in an interview with the Daily Beast. The report explains that Aiden was too young to know the names of his parents.

Another family later took the child to the hospital, and he was finally reunited with his grandparents.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for the family, to help care for Aiden. As of this report, it has already raised over $621,000.

  1. You can blame this one on Biden. He wants to take peoples guns away, yet illegal immigrants can keep guns and thugs that are out there, they always find a gun to use against innocent people. If that idiot Biden gets his way no family will be safe in the US because nobody will have guns to defend themselves. Maybe before selling someone a gun they might want to check the person out and their background and everything. So many of them slide through the system can they easily get guns when they should not have a gun

  2. We are now living in a F’d up Country. Ever since all this technology has came in view we’ve has issues. Cell phones, computers, video games, Tic Tok, internet and all the other 💩 that’s been introduced to us, plays a part. There are no morals, standards, respect, compassion, intelligence, or punishments in raising your kids. They think their entitled to everything, and you parents are at fault. Shameful.

  3. Too many left wing looneys trying to make a point and displaying their core evil. What substantial improvement have liberal, dim, creatures created? Most of what I observe is destruction at their hands as they suckle from the fruits of prosperity provided by those with much better sense and conservative, reasonable, values – so sick of the sick woke culture – their primitive!

  4. So very sad! Breaks my heart. God help this little boy and bless the family. So much evil sickness in this world.

  5. It is time for the Military to take control of the country time to oust the current Circus out of existence ‼️ Military can run the country until the next Presidential Election this Clown destroying everything if the people do not act soon to get him out it will be too late‼️
