UPDATE: Lawton industrial accident victims

LAWTON-- We continue our coverage on the two workers injured in the industrial accident at Lawton Transit Mix last Friday. The families of Mark Barker and Dick Tago say both of the men remain in critical condition at an Oklahoma City Hospital.

Barker is the son-in-law of former Lawton Mayor Cecil Powell. Powell says Barker is showing signs of improvement, but is still struggling from several injuries below his waist.

Tago's wife, Tammy, tells 7-News that her husband is still in a medically induced coma and has undergone a about 13 hours of surgery since the accident. Right now she says Tago's condition is touch and go.

Both families say they are thankful for the thoughts and prayers they're receiving from Texomans
