Child still critical after lightning hits 11 in Paris park

A fire truck is parked at the entrance to Monceau Park in the center of Paris, France, Saturday, May 28, 2016, after a lightning bolt struck 11 people at a child's birthday party.

Eight children and three adults were struck by lightning Saturday in a Paris park after a sudden spring storm sent a bolt crashing down upon a children's birthday party, a spokesman for Paris' fire service said. He credited an off-duty firefighter with playing a critical role in getting immediate medical help to the victims, but one child remains in critical condition.
