2 Adults, Child Struck By Lightning in Glacier

Posted: Updated:

WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) - Two adults and a child were apparently struck by lightning while hiking on a trail in Glacier National Park.
    
They were taken to the hospital in Kalispell, but officials did not immediately know the conditions of the man and woman, both age 23, and the child. It was not known if they are related.
    
A ranger called park dispatchers at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday to report the apparent strike on the St. Mary Falls Trail on the east side of the park.
    
Bystanders started CPR and the victims were carried on litters to the trailhead. The child was flown to the hospital while the adults were put on an ambulance. The helicopter returned and picked up the man while the woman continued to the hospital in the ambulance.

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - An eighth planet has been found in a faraway solar system, matching our own in numbers. Even more amazing, machines and not humans made the discovery. NASA joined with Google on Thursday to announce the finding. This eighth planet orbits the star known as Kepler-90, 2,545 light-years away. Like Earth, this new planet is the third rock from its sun. But it's much closer to its sun and therefore a scorching 800 degrees Fahrenheit (427 Celsius)
