15 Hit by Lightning Strike in El Salvador

SAN SALVADOR – At least 15 people, several of them children, were injured by the electric shock of a lightning bolt that hit the surroundings of an amusement park in San Salvador, a rescue team said Monday.

Salvadoran Red Cross official Carlos López said that the organization attended to 15 people, some with burns and others with electric shock, after lightning hit a powerline transformer Sunday night.

The lightning caused panic among the hundreds of people crowding the fair grounds set up as part of a civic celebration that ended last weekend.
