The death toll in the two terror attacks in Spain Thursday night rose to 14 Friday afternoon, less than a day after an Islamic terrorist ran down roughly 100 pedestrians outside a popular shopping center in Barcelona, and a second vehicle hit seven in the town of Cambrils.

A total of 13 people were killed in Barcelona, while 1 of the 7 injured in Cambrils succumbed to her injuries Friday.

Authorities also released the identities of two of the dead on Friday. One, a tourist from Italy, was killed while walking down the street with his wife and five-year-old son and seven-month-old daughter.

Bruno Gulotta, a 35-year-old father of two, was crushed by the terrorist’s Fiat van and killed instantly, The Telegraph reported.

Gulotta’s wife, Martina, managed to pull the couple’s five-year-old son out of harm’s way moments before the vehicle ran down her husband. Both of the couple’s children escaped injury.

Luca Russo, a second Italian citizen, was also listed among the dead.

The 25-year-old engineering graduate was on vacation with his fiancée when he was killed.

A Belgian woman and three German citizens were also listed among the dead, though no personal details have yet been released.

At least one child, a three-year-old, was among those killed in the attack.

In addition, several people have been reported missing following the attack, including a seven-year-old Australian boy.

Tony Cadman, of Sydney, reached out to media outlets Thursday night, begging for help to locate his lost grandson, Julian Cadman, who was at the scene of the attack with his mother.

The boy’s mother, Jom, was injured in the attack and has been hospitalized in serious but stable condition.
