ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Two young boys from Papua New Guinea remain hospitalized in New York a month after they suffered serious injuries in a crash that killed their grandmother, a prominent anthropologist in the southwest Pacific nation.

Nancy Sullivan’s family says the boys, ages 5 and 10, were moved out of intensive care last week but remain at a Westchester hospital. Their 8-year-old brother was released from the hospital late last month.

The boys and their nanny were injured when the rental vehicle the 57-year-old Sullivan was driving crashed while heading north on the Taconic State Parkway in Dutchess County. The boys are the children of one of several children the Westchester native adopted in Papua New Guinea, where she had lived for nearly 25 years.

Sullivan’s family has started an online campaign on giveforward.com to raise funds for the boys’ medical costs.
