A college student from Springfield is among the dozens injured in the bombings at the Boston Marathon this week.
As 970 WMAY News was the first to report, the woman was part of a group of sorority sisters from Emerson College in Boston that attended the marathon.
Several members of that group sustained injuries including cuts, perforated eardrums and concussions.
The student from Springfield and the others are now out of the hospital and recuperating with family and friends.
The school has requested that the name of the student not be released out of respect for her privacy.
