There were twenty-nine of these and the hospital force was kept on the jump by the sudden influx, but by noon all had been attended to and the physicians reported that all of the victims were doing well. Regarding those injured internally the doctors said at least two or three days would be required before their fate would be determined, but all of the others were said to be doing well and several were expected to be able to leave the hospital within the next day or so.
