His father, Daniel Tucker, who worked with his son in the family's pool business, told the New York Daily News, "It's something we really just don't understand".

The Australian government has said four citizens were hurt - two men have been discharged from the hospital, while one woman was in serious condition and another in serious but stable condition.

She and her husband, who is a 42-year-old construction worker, had been on a romantic tour of Europe to celebrate their first year of marriage, traveling through Paris, Venice and then the Catalan city.

In total, 13 people were killed in Barcelona when a van veered into a crowded promenade, while another died in a separate attack in the nearby resort town of Cambrils.

Authorities investigating both attacks believe there may have been a cell of eight people involved, and that the group planned to use butane gas canisters, the Reuters news agency reports, citing an unnamed judicial source.

He said diplomats from the US consulate in Barcelona are working with local authorities to identify victims and provide assistance to other Americans in need.

"We identify with Martina, a young mother showing strength in the face of something no one should ever have to bear". His wife had 1-year-old daughter Aria in a baby carrier and managed to pull her son out of the way too.

The principal says she's been in contact with Heidi and it's unclear when she'll be back.


Bruno Gulotta, 35, a hardware company marketing chief from Legnano north of Milan, was on holiday in Barcelona with his wife and kids.

His cousin and his grandfather, George and Tony Cadman, wrote on Facebook: "My cousin/grandson, Julian Alessandro Cadman is missing".

Friends and family posted about their heartbreak and tributes to Tucker on social media.

Three men have been arrested, but the driver of the deadliest attack - a van ramming in Barcelona, more than a dozen - is still at large.

Her death was confirmed by the Spanish royal family's Twitter account who offered their thoughts to her family. Peter Beyen said: "Just found out that the Belgian woman killed in the terrorist act in Barcelona was a colleague". She has not been identified. The couple was married a year ago.

One American has been confirmed by family to be one of the at least 13 dead following Thursday's deadly attack in Barcelona, Spain.

Spanish newspaper El Pais said three Germans are among the dead, but officials did not confirm the report. Tillerson confirmed a second American had suffered minor injuries as well.
