SALINA, Kan. (AP) — An 11-year-old Salina girl who suffered an electrical shock while playing in a rainstorm remains in critical condition at a Wichita hospital.

An uncle of Jayden Hicks told The Salina Journal ( ) the family has seen some improvements since the girl was hospitalized May 29 but he did not give specifics.

The girl was found lying on two in-ground electrical junction boxes in front of the Campbell Plaza in downtown Salina.

Four other children playing with her and a firefighter who was injured during the rescue were treated and released at a Salina hospital.

Fire Marshal Roger Williams said Wednesday an investigation into the incident is continuing, with a focus on electrical wiring that connects street lights, public restroom lights and traffic lights at three pedestrian crossings.
