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.
