Woman hit by lightning at zoo in Rising Sun
Lightning strikes a young woman at a zoo in Cecil County.
19-year-old Haley Embleton, a University of Delaware student from Sussex County, was working as an intern at the Plumpton Park Zoo in Rising Sun when severe weather came through around 9:10 a.m. Thursday.
The fire chief of the Community Fire Company in Rising Sun says he's not sure whether Embleton was hit directly or whether the lightning hit a nearby object first.
The Cecil Whig reports that zoo staff members immediately gave her CPR and she was taken to the hospital. There's no word on her condition.
