The victims have been identified as 10 year old Diana Yacab and 7 year old Herber Yacab, both residents of St. Matthews village.

Diana Yacab suffered a cut wound to the head as well as abrasions to her feet.
Herber Yacab suffered head and body injuries.
They were both taken to the Western Regional hospital in Belmopan for treatment.
None of the injuries appear to be life-threatening and both children were listed in stable condition.
