Share this post

A nine-month-old child rescued from fire when lightning struck a Gary home last week was reportedly upgraded to stable condition. The baby was taken to a Chicago hospital after crews responded to the one-thousand block of Jefferson Court early Thursday afternoon. A 45-year-old resident of the home found shielding the child from flames later died. Lightning also struck a billboard on the Borman Expressway in Gary minutes earlier, claiming the life of a 28-year-old Hobart man.
