Lightning Strikes 3 Kids At Summer Camp

NBCNEWS.COM - A lightning strike in a field at an Indianapolis summer camp injured three children Saturday afternoon, leaving one in critical condition, police said. Emergency crews responded to the Goldman Union Camp Institute, a reform Jewish camp near Zionsville, Ind., around 1:40 p.m. Saturday, where they learned that three children had been hit by a sudden burst of lightning, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department release.

Camp counselors had already begun lifesaving efforts when responders arrived at the scene of the strike, according to police. The injured children were transported to local hospitals, police said. Their names have not been released by authorities. It was not immediately clear which one of the three victims – a 9-year-old girl from Missouri, a 9-year-old boy from Kentucky, and a 12-year-old boy from Ohio – was in critical condition on Saturday afternoon.

When reached by phone, a representative from the camp declined to provide information about the incident but said employees are working to ensure the safety of other campers.
