At Goldman Union Camp Institute (GUCI) in Zionsville, Ind., a lightning strike in an open field injured three campers Saturday afternoon. It left Ethan Kadish of Loveland in critical condition.
Kadish and the two other campers were playing Ultimate Frisbee when lightning suddenly struck them. According to some reports, there was no storm and not even rain at the time the lightning struck. Camp counselors had begun lifesaving efforts before medics arrived at the camp.
All three were rushed to local hospitals to be treated for their injuries. One of the injured campers was discharged from the hospital and went home with his family.
Kadish is the son of Scott and Alexia Kadish. Scott is a Procter & Gamble employee. Alexia is a substitute teacher at Rockwern Academy and the American Israelite’s copy editor.
