Struck by Lightning


The 47-year-old man who was killed by lightning at a golf course has been identified.

Campbell and his 16-year-old son were playing at the Meadows Golf Club in Littleton Saturday when they were hit by a bolt of lightning with three other people.

The three people were treated and released at the scene, but the teenager was eventually taken to University of Colorado Hospital. His condition remains unknown.
