Indy camp back to normal after lightning hurts 3

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indianapolis summer camp it has resumed its normal schedule a day after a lightning strike injured three children.

A message posted on the Facebook page of Goldman Union Camp Institute, a Reform Jewish summer camp, said the camp had resumed its normal schedule. The message, which camp director Rabbi Mark Covitz also sent to the parents of campers, said “the safety of your children is our highest priority.”

Indianapolis police say one child was critically injured and two others were hospitalized in stable condition after the lightning strike Saturday afternoon.

A woman who answered the camp phone Sunday said she could not release any information.

The injured campers were a 12-year-old Loveland, Ohio, boy and two 9-year-olds — a Chesterfield, Mo., girl, and a Kentucky boy, possibly from Louisville.
