INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Three children were taken to an Indianapolis hospital Saturday afternoon after reports of a lightning strike on the north side of Indy.
Authorities were called to the 9300 block of Moore Road around 1:40 p.m. to the Goldman Union Camp Institute.
IMPD Spokesman Officer Kendale Adams says witnesses reported seeing a lightning strike, though information on whether the children were injured as a result of the lightning strike was not immediately available.
Authorities say the incident happened in the camp's northeast field. Police say when they arrived camp counselors had already begun life-saving attempts on the children.
Pike Township firefighters then took over with life-saving attempts before the children were taken to the hospital.
According to IMPD, one child was listed in critical condition around 4 p.m. The other two children's conditions were listed as stable.
The children are a 9-year-old boy from Kentucky, a 9-year-old girl from Chesterfield, and a 12-year-old boy from Ohio.
Officials were working to contact parents of children at the camp.
Two people are in the Vigo County jail facing charges of burglary with deadly weapons, residential entry, and possession of various drugs and paraphernalia.
