BOSTON (AP) — The families of those who lost loved ones and individuals who suffered double amputations or permanent brain damage in the Boston Marathon bombing would receive the highest category of payment from a fund created to help people injured in the twin blasts.
That’s according to a draft protocol of payouts from the One Fund Boston, which had taken in more than $28 million in donations.
The fund administrator, Kenneth Feinberg, unveiled the draft protocol at a public meeting Monday at the Boston Public Library, across the street from the bombing site.
Those who received physical injuries and suffered the amputation of a limb will be the next highest priority for funds followed by those who were physically injured and hospitalized overnight.
Three people were killed and more than 260 injured in the April 15 bombing.
