Jane, Henry Richard lay wreath for brother's death

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) -

One of the youngest survivors of the Boston Marathon attacks lead the way for Tuesday's ceremony on Boylston Street.

Jane Richard lost her brother and part of her leg to the bombing last April, but she didn’t lose her courage.

With her family, she bravely returned to the finish line to remember what they lost one year ago.

Jane, now 8-years-old, walked to the site where she lost her leg and lost her brother with Mayor Marty Walsh by her side.

She was joined by her older brother Henry and together they helped to lay a wreath outside the Forum restaurant where their brother Martin Richard was killed.

Bagpipes played as the Richard family stood in tribute to the little boy they lost.

It was little Jane on the move once again not letting her prosthetic leg slow her down as she made her way more than 200 yards down Boylston Street to the marathon finish line, the site of the other blast.
