Hospital officials say Sean O'Keefe remains in critical condition, while his teenage son and another man are listed as serious.

Perhaps you didn't know, but Sen. Ted Stevens was actually a Hoosier himself. Stevens was born in 1923 in Indianapolis.

We caught up with Sen. Dick Lugar R-Ind earlier Wednesday who said, although Stevens served Alaska, he never forgot his Indiana roots.

“Ted went to School Number 84 in Indianapolis, he was Hoosier. He had a boyhood in this state. We often reminisced about that as senators. We served together for 30 years. "I will miss him very much and I was very very sad to hear that news yesterday,” Sen. Dick Lugar said.
