Little boy on Time Magazine cover is 'doing fine'

A young boy, bloody, crying, and being carried by a first responder in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing attack, is pictured on the cover of Time Magazine this week. In a statement first released to CNN, the family said their son "is at home and doing fine."

The full statement below:

The family of the young boy pictured on the cover of this week's Time magazine would like the world to know that their son is at home and doing fine. The family has been deeply touched by the outpouring of concern and support from around the world and ask that the media please respect their privacy and not contact them.
