BOSTON (AP) - Boston hospitals say the number of patients being treated for injuries sustained in the marathon bombing continues to drop, two weeks after the attack that killed three and hurt more than 260.
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center said Sunday morning that it has six patients with bombing injuries, down from more than 20 immediately following the April 15 attack.
All six are in good or fair condition.
Beth Israel also treated bombing suspect Dzhohkar Tsarnaev for injuries authorities say he suffered during an attempt to elude police. Tsarnaev was moved Friday to a federal prison medical center.
Nine victims are still at Brigham and Women's Hospital, down from 36 after the bombing. Seven are in good condition.
In all, 26 hospitals have treated people injured in the bombing.
