The unfortunate subtler harm of the Boston bombings – hearing loss

Several people, along with all of the other injuries sustained from the Boston bombing, reported hearing loss due to the blast energy given off by the bomb, reports the NYT. As the article states, most of the people will regain their hearing in the coming weeks, as the eardrum is able to heal. However, I’m sure their overall hearing ability has decreased somewhat – they won’t be able to hear as well as they used to. How sad.
