MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A family spokesman says two of the children rescued from a pond after a car veered off a suburban Minneapolis highway ramp are improving.

Attorney Rick Petry said Friday the two are now responding to health workers' commands. He calls that "a huge improvement."

Petry says a third child remains in stable but critical condition.

They were among five children, ages 1 to 7, who were trapped in the car after it plunged into 9 feet of water. Authorities confirm two of the children died.

Petry says the 23-year-old woman driving the car was taking the children to her mother's to finish getting them ready for school when the accident happened.
