Three Aurora-area hospitals said Wednesday that they would limit or completely wipe out the cost of the medical bills for those wounded in the shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises that injured 58 people and killed 12. Children’s Hospital Colorado, the Medical Center of Aurora and Swedish Medical Center said they would limit or eliminate the costs while the other two hospitals that took victims, the Denver Medical Center and the University of Colorado Hospital, wouldn’t say directly what they would do. Several of the victims are young and don’t have insurance. Nearly $2 million has been raised by the public and Warner Brothers has agreed to donate some of the profits to the victims.
