Four of the workers were taken to UC San Diego Medical Center. One remained in critical condition Sunday afternoon, according to the report. Two more workers reportedly had been discharged and one was in the process of being discharged. Two others were reportedly treated at the scene of the explosion and released. [Source: AP]
