Doctors are praising the "outstanding and brave" response from emergency crews after it was revealed that all of the victims from the London Bridge terror attack who were hospitalized have survived.

Eight people were killed in last Saturday night's attack that saw a van plow into a crowd on the bridge before three attackers emerged to slash and stab at people in nearby Borough Market.

There were 48 others injured in the chaos, with 21 in critical condition, but all survived, the Evening Standard reports.

“It was very challenging but what we have trained for," said Duncan Bew, clinical director of King's College Hospital's major trauma center. "Getting there early to receive them [on admission to the emergency department] was the key, or it would have been different. The vital role of public and professional first responders in the chain of survival at the scene is a very significant factor, and they should be praised. No one died who got to hospital."

Bew singled out some responders that arrived and "scooped and ran" victims from the scene.

"That decision saved lives."

The Royal London hospital, along with King's received the bulk of the victims, while three other medical center's have casualties. According to the Standard, 29 were still hospitalized and 10 remained in critical care as of midday Thursday.
