Baton Rouge, La. - Doctors upgraded the conditions of two of the injured Black elk platform workers.

The Philippine Embassy reports two of the men have been removed from the critical list while the third survivor is listed in good condition.

The embassy released a photo taken Saturday of the Consul general visiting Renato Dominguez at the burn unit in Baton Rouge General Hospital.

Dominguez's wife, Eva, says she knew the worst was behind them when her husband asked her for a kiss.

Three other workers died in the November 16th fire on board the Gulf platform. The bodies of two of them were found in the water while the third died at the hospital.
