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.
