GLOCESTER, R.I. (AP) — Police say three children were taken to a hospital after they were indirectly struck by lightning in Glocester, Rhode Island.
Authorities tell WBZ-TV in Boston, the kids, ages 5, 13 and 14, were playing in a yard Sunday afternoon when they were indirectly hit by lightning.
Numerous media outlets report the children said they felt a tingling in their bodies after a nearby lightning strike.
Officials say the kids were taken to Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence with non-life-threatening injuries. They’re being held overnight for observation but are expected to be OK.
