There is a fund raiser on gofundme for the two most injured boys. Their goal is $15,000. On the site there's been an update saying that one of the boys is resting comfortably and no longer on a ventilator. The medical team is still unsure about his brain damage. The other boy has a sternum breakage and is having difficulty breathing. He also has two fractures in his jaw. They plan on doing jaw surgery later today, June 16th, putting plates on both sides of his jaw. They are going to wait a few days on wiring his jaw shut do to his difficulty breathing.
