Question of the Day
Teen hit by lightning while under a tree
A 16-year-old girl was in critical condition last night after being struck by lightning near her home.
The girl was waiting for a bus on Kennebeck Street yesterday afternoon when she ran under a tree to get out of the rain, Prince George’s County fire officials said. The lightning struck the tree, then hit her.
A nearby Potomac Electric Power Co. crew who saw what happened performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the girl until paramedics arrived. One of the Pepco workers said the girl had no pulse and wasn’t breathing.
The girl was being treated at Greater Southeast Community Hospital.
Dog illness prompts closing of kennels
Several Humane Society kennels in Wicomico County have been closed amid an outbreak of sickness among the dogs.
The outbreak started June 16, when a recently adopted 8-week-old puppy died. Other dogs were showing signs of respiratory illness, but testing to determine the disease continues.
Linda Lugo, executive director of the Humane Society in Wicomico County, said some dogs have been tested for distemper, a virus.
The kennels were expected to remain closed the rest of this week.
