Trauma doctor says most injuries to legs

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - The trauma surgery chief at Boston Medical Center says most of the injuries his hospital treated were to the lower extremities.

Dr. Peter Burke says the hospital treated 23 people following the bombing, and 19 remained there on Wednesday morning. He says two patients, including a 5-year-old child, remain in critical condition, but says all the patients are making good progress and are expected to survive.

Dozens of others have been released from hospitals around the Boston area.

Massachusetts General Hospital says all but 12 of the 31 people sent there have been released. Eight are critical.

Beth Israel still has 13 of the 24 people sent there. Boston Children's has three remaining of its original 10 patients; and Tufts Medical Center has released half of its 14 bombing patients.
