Two Americans were killed in the attack in Nice, France, Thursday night, after a terrorist plowed into a large crowd with a truck hauling grenades and other weapons during Bastille Day celebrations, a family member confirms to ABC News.
Sean Copeland and his 11-year-old son Brodie, who were in Nice on a family vacation, were killed in the attack, Alyssa Weaver, the elder Copeland's niece confirms. The Copelands are from Lakeway, Texas, about 30 miles west of Austin.
Weaver tweeted, "I am asking for prayers for my family, due to the tragedy in Nice, France I lost my uncle Sean and my 11 year old cousin Brodie I ask for prayers for my aunt Kim and my two other cousins Maegan and Austin during this tough time and prayers for my family’s safe trip back home #CopelandStrong”
The death toll climbed overnight from 80 to 84 people -- including several children -- as dozens more were injured and receiving treatment, according to the Ministry of the Interior.
"France is horrified by what has just occurred -- a monstrous act of using a truck to intentionally kill dozens of people celebrating 14th of July," Hollande said during a nationally televised address early Friday. "France is strong. France will always be stronger than the fanatics who want to strike France today."
Officials have not yet identified the attacker, and there have been no claims of responsibility yet. The Paris anti-terrorism prosecutor's office was put in charge of the investigation.
Graphic images surfaced on social media showing the chaos that ensued including the truck barreling down crowds and as dozens were seen running from the scene.
