A ninth child was discharged from Wisconsin Children’s Hospital after being treated for injuries during the tragedy of the Waukesha Christmas parade Sunday.
A total of seven children are still recovering at the hospital a week after a mad driver plowed through festivities at an annual Christmas celebration in the Milwaukee suburb, killing six people and injuring more than 60 others.
Three of the children are in serious condition, three in reasonable condition, and one is in good condition. announced the hospital.
“We deeply appreciate the care and compassion of the Children’s Wisconsin team and the continued support of our community,” Children’s Hospital Wisconsin tweeted.
The Waukesha tragedy took place last week when career criminal Darrell Brooks, 39, allegedly used a red Ford Escape to drive into the crowd.
Brooks had been out on bail after allegedly driving over his girlfriend with the SUV earlier this month.
He was charged with five counts of first-degree premeditated murder in the attack, but prosecutors said he will be charged with a sixth charge after the death of the youngest victim, 8-year-old Jackson Sparks, who had been in critical condition after the attack.
