INDIANAPOLIS Indianapolis police say one child was critically injured and two others also were injured at a summer camp on the north side of Indianapolis when lightning struck.

Officer Kendale Adams says the critically injured child was taken to Indianapolis St. Vincent Hospital and the other two were taken to Riley Hospital for Children in stable condition. He says he didn't have ages or genders of those injured because officials at the Goldman Union Camp Institute, a Reform Jewish summer camp, didn't want to release any information.

Adams says witnesses said the children were injured when lightning struck shortly before 2 p.m. Saturday. He says they were not in the water at the time.

A message left Saturday for the camp director by The Associated Press was not immediately returned.
