The school district where the children went to school said the community was “simply heartsick” following the deaths of the five students and their mother.

The statement was released before Mr Dobosz died and also said mental health professionals would be there for assistance during the school week, NBC Chicago reported.

Another GoFundMe was set up by Ms Dobosz’s parents who said they were at a “loss for words” following the tragic event.

“We have lost our beautiful daughter, Lauren, and our precious grandkids,” they wrote, adding they were praying for their son-in-law while he was still in the ICU.
