INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis police say three children were injured when lightning struck a summer camp on the north side of the city, including one child who was critically hurt.

Officer Kendale Adams says the critically injured child was taken to Indianapolis St. Vincent Hospital, but the child's condition wasn't immediately known. The other two were taken to Riley Hospital for Children in stable condition.

Witnesses told police that 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.

The camp director didn't return a message from The Associated Press.
