The child was separated from his parents after another couple reportedly rescued him during the chaos.

Lauren Silva, 38, said she and her boyfriend ran out of a parking garage after hearing gunshots during the Independence Day parade.

The two had just finished breakfast when the noise stopped them in their tracks.

“We just opened the door to go up the stairs and we heard it… boom, boom, boom, boom, boom,” Silva told The Daily Beast.

“And it sounded like someone was banging on the glass door.”

Silva and her boyfriend were close to suspected killer Robert E Crimo when he allegedly opened fire on a rooftop, killing at least seven and injuring over 25.

“I didn’t hear any screams at all, it was eerily quiet,” said Silva.

She and her boyfriend reacted to the violence and ran to help the victims.

“My friend gave me this little boy and said he was under this father who was shot in the leg,” Silva told the beast.

“They were trying to stop the bleeding so I took the boy downstairs to the garage.”

Silva ran to the basement of the garage with another family to take care of the missing child, later named Aiden.

“He kept asking if mom and dad were coming back soon,” said Silva.

They stayed in the garage for what felt like 20 minutes before the two reconnected with their boyfriend, Silva said.

The child was reunited with his grandparents after another couple took him to the fire department, CBS News reported.

Dana and Greg Ring said they grabbed the uninjured child before attempting to search for his parents.

“And I saw the scene,” Greg said.

“Carnage,” Dana said.

They made the decision to take him to the fire department, where a Highland Police detective took Aiden to his grandparents.

A GoFundMe was started to raise funds for the orphan.

“On behalf of his family and with their permission, I’m starting this fundraiser to support him and the caregivers who will get a taste of[the child’s]education, care and support as he and his support system embark on this unexpected journey.” embark,” the organizer wrote.

Robert E Crimo was arrested eight hours after the shooting.

Officials believe he used an AR-15 style gun from a rooftop during the July 4th parade.
