CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A normally busy day at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary turned into "organized chaos" after two bombs exploded nearly a year ago at the Boston Marathon.

A doctor and two nurses who treated victims of the bombings said Wednesday night at a forum in New Hampshire that it quickly became clear they were dealing with a major incident.

Three people died and 260 were injured April 15 when two homemade bombs exploded near the finish line on Boylston Street.

Dr. Aaron Remenschneider and registered nurses Deb Trocchi and Maureen Martinez were on duty and helped treat the wounded. They spoke about their experience at the New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord.

The hospital also provided continuing care for victims and is using what they learned to help treat other ear and eye injuries.
