One week after the bombings, all of the more than 180 people injured in the blasts who made it to a hospital alive now seem likely to survive. The remarkable, universal survival of those injured is a testimonial to fast care at the scene, on the way to hospitals, then in emergency and operating rooms. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File)

BOSTON (AP) — Boston hospitals say the number of patients being treated for injuries sustained in the marathon bombing continues to drop, nearly two weeks after the attack that killed three and hurt more than 260.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center said Sunday morning six patients with bombing injuries remain hospitalized, down from more than 20 immediately following the April 15 attack.

All six are in good or fair condition.

Nine victims remain at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, down from 36 after the bombing. Seven are in good condition.

Massachusetts General Hospital continues to treat six bombing victims, with one in serious condition and the others in good or fair condition. The hospital has treated 31 bombing victims.

In all, 26 hospitals have treated people injured in the bombing.
