He says the friend was seriously injured in the explosion.

Richard's father confirmed news of the little boy's death.

Meanwhile, Richard's mother and sister are both in the hospital, recovering from serious injuries.

A neighbor described Richard as an outgoing kid, who enjoyed playing soccer and bike riding.
