Hospital: 4 from Guatemala volcano critical

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — A Southeast Texas hospital treating six Guatemalan children severely burned when a volcano erupted last week says four of the children are in critical condition and two others are in good condition.

The six were flown by military plane to Shriners Hospital of Galveston on June 7, four days after the Volcano of Fire eruption. The hospital’s chief of staff, Dr. Steven Wolf, says the children face months and possibly years of recovery.

The Houston Chronicle reports hospital officials have declined to identify the children.
