Boy Scout Death

Boy Scout is killed by lightning

The Boy Scouts have suffered another tragedy. Authorities in Salt Lake City say a Boy Scout was killed and three others were injured last night when a bolt of lightning hit the log shelter they were sleeping in. It was open on one side. The boys were at a scout camp in the mountains east of Salt Lake City. Boy Scout leaders say the boy who died was 15 years old.

The others range in age from 12 to 16. Last Thursday, a 13-year-old Scout was killed by lightning in California. And four Scout leaders were electrocuted in Virginia earlier that week.
