A 2-year-old child was left to fend for himself after both of his parents were killed during Monday’s Highland park mass shooting at the July 4th parade in Illinois, TMZ reports.

According to the report, 37-year-old Kevin McCarthy, and 35-year-old Irina McCarthy, both died after a 21-year-old armed with an assault rifle opened fire on the unsuspecting crowd.

The McCarthy’s son, Aiden, was reportedly separated from his parents and got lost in the chaos.

Apparently, a couple found the young boy in the midst of Monday’s highland park mass shooting mayhem and brought him to the local fire department.

Reports say the 2-year-old was eventually reunited with his grandparents at a hospital.

 7 people have died and at least 30 were injured during Monday’s massacre. The shooter fired off close to 70 rounds.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help support Aiden, who is now without both parents. The creators of the page wrote, “We took him to safety under tragic circumstances, came together to locate his grandparents, and prayed for the safety of his family.”

While the page states the boy will now be in the care of his grandparents … it notes that he will have a long road ahead to heal, find stability, and ultimately navigate life without both parents
