INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—One of three juveniles injured after a lightning strike at a Zionsville summer camp was released from the hospital, announced camp officials on their website Monday. 

Three campers–a 9-year-old Missouri girl, a 9-year-old Kentucky boy and 12-year-old boy from Ohio–were injured Saturday afternoon following an isolated lightning strike at the northeast field of the Goldman Union Camp Institute.

Rabbi Mark Covitz of the camp said one of the children was released from the hospital and has gone home with his family.

“I want to thank you for your support over the past two days, and for calling in to last night’s conference call concerning this weekend’s lightning strike,” stated Covitz in the camp’s letter.

One of the children was reported to be in critical condition following the strike. The conditions of the two children still hospitalized are unknown at this time.
