Officials say that the two remaining Virginia Tech students hospitalized after being exposed to carbon monoxide leak at some apartments in Blacksburg are now listed in good condition.
Five roommates and more than 20 people were sickened by the leak on Sunday. The five 19-year-old sophomores shared a second-floor apartment where the leak occurred in a water heater. It apparently was caused by a faulty valve that became stuck open.
Kristen Julia of Ashburn and Kirstin Halik of Vienna remain at
the Charlottesville hospital.
The three others, Elizabeth Burgin, Carolyn Dorman and Nichole
Howarth, were released from Duke University Medical Center in
Durham, North Carolina, earlier this week.
