OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Hospitals treating more than 120 patients after Oklahoma tornado, including about 70 children.

Integris Southwest Medical Center spokeswoman Brooke Cayot said 10 of 37 patients being treated at that facility Monday are listed in critical condition. Twelve are in serious and 15 others are listed in fair or good condition.

Five of the patients are children, including two who came from the Plaza Towers Elementary School, where an Associated Press photographer saw several children being pulled from the rubble. Cayot could not confirm the children’s conditions.
