Second of three campers released from hospital after weekend lightning strike at camp

One child remains at hospital

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. - A second child was released from the hospital late Monday night following a weekend incident that sent three campers to the hospital after a lightning strike hit a camp on the city’s northwest side.

The three campers were attending Goldman Union Camp Institute in the 9300 block of Moore Road in Zionsville, Ind.

One of the three kids was critically injured when lightning struck the camp Saturday.

Rabbi Marc Kline gave an update on his Facebook page late Monday evening.

“Our camp is staffed primarily by college and post-graduate school age young adults. The courage, the professionalism and the obvious love that these people showed in the most awful of situations will stay with me for the rest of my life,” Kline said. “They literally saved lives, physically, spiritually and emotionally; a gift and blessing for which I will always stand in awe and for which I will always be grateful.”

Kline said that one of the injured campers wanted to return back to the camp for the rest of the session.

There was no update on the condition of the third camper.

The storm was miles away from the camp at the time.
