Hundreds plan to attend vigil in Salem tonight


Stephen Woolfenden, 38, and his young son were injured in the blast while watching for Amber Woolfenden, Stephen’s wife and the boy’s mother, to cross the finish line. Bill Richard, a 1988 graduate of Salem High, is the father of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old Dorchester boy killed on Monday.

Donations can be sent to the Salem Five (Attn. Richard Family Fund or Woolfenden Family Fund), 201 Essex St., Salem, MA 01970.

Stephen Woolfenden is a patient at Boston Medical Center, where his condition was upgraded yesterday from “critical” to “serious.” His son reportedly was taken to Children’s Hospital, which is not releasing patient information.
