Hospitals treat carnage after blasts

(Continued)

The nine victims treated at New England Medical Center included victims with serious trauma and leg fractures, shrapnel wounds and ruptured eardrums, said Julie Jette, a spokeswoman. She said it did not appear any of the injuries were life threatening.

At one point, Jette said, Boston police cleared the hospital’s emergency room after a report of a suspicious package, but later determined there was no threat.

At least eight Boston hospitals treated victims from the blasts.
