Marathon Casualty Count Spikes

The injury toll from the Boston Marathon bombings is much higher than initial counts indicated. The count of people treated in area hospitals for injuries from last week's bombing has risen sharply to 282, according to the Boston Public Health Commission. Earlier estimates were about 170. The commission says dozens of victims waited to go to the hospital for minor wounds or symptoms that they thought would go away on their own/USA Today.
