Three Children Injured In Summer Camp Lightning Strike

INDIANAPOLIS (June 30, 2013)—Three children were injured when lightning struck a summer camp on the north side of Indianapolis and one of three was critically hurt, police said.

Officer Kendale Adams says the critically injured child was taken to Indianapolis St. Vincent Hospital.

The other two were taken to Riley Hospital for Children in stable condition.

Witnesses told officers the children were injured when lightning struck shortly before 2 p.m. Saturday at the Goldman Union Camp Institute, a Reform Jewish summer camp.

Adams says he didn't have ages or genders of the victims because camp officials didn't want the information released.
