Two of three children injured during a weekend accident in an Orem parade involving a Civil War reenactment cannon remained hospitalized on Monday.
Orem police Lt. Guy Gustman confirmed that one of the children had been released, while the other two — apparently in serious condition — remained at the University of Utah burn center.
Gustman could specifically identify which of the children had been discharged or further detail the extent of their injuries.
Two boys and one girl, ages 8 to 10, had been transported to the burn treatment facility on Saturday after the explosion during the Orem Summerfest Parade.
The incident occurred when the reenactment group fired a cannon near 800 E. Center Street. Sparks from the shot ignited a nearby pouch of additional charges, injuring the children, two of whom were siblings, Gustman said.
Orem police continued to investigate.
