PEACH BOTTOM, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a lightning strike has killed a boy who was swimming in a central Pennsylvania creek.

Lancaster Newspapers reports that three boys were swimming in the Conowingo Creek in Fulton Township when a storm moved through Sunday afternoon.

Fire Chief Tracy Tomlinson said crews used an ATV to cross a field to reach the boys. Two of them were taken to Lancaster General Hospital and then to Hershey Medical Center.

The Dauphin County coroner's office says one boy was pronounced dead at the Hershey hospital Sunday night.

The condition of a second boy who was injured hasn't been released. The third boy apparently wasn't hurt.
