Seven-year-old Tayton Winward remains in critical condition at the University Hospital burn center, two weeks after the accident that happened as five boys walked home from school in the town of Perry.
A large fundraiser is scheduled Friday to help Winward and his family.
Ten-year-old Tyler Bergman described a chaotic scene after the explosion. He told the Deseret News he helped his friend take off his shoe, which was on fire, and ran to a UPS deliveryman to seek help.
He burned his hands in the process.
Four of the five boys spent time in the hospital after the incident.
