Grad Student from China Among Boston Victims

(WHDH) Students at Boston University are mourning the loss of one of their own.

The school confirms a graduate student was the third person killed in the marathon bombing.

She was at the race with two fellow students. One of the students, also a grad student at the university, was injured and is at Boston Medical Center in stable condition.

The Chinese consulate has confirmed the young victim was a Chinese national.

Friends are desperately hoping for answers.

"Everybody is talking about her and couldn't find her in the hospital and any place in campus, as an Asian student as an international student I could not imagine her parents could stand this, that's it, I'm so sad, it's truly sad news," said one fellow student.

The two other victims who died have been identified as 8-year-old Martin Richard, of Boston, and 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, of Medford.
