Three children were hospitalized after being hit by lightning at the Field of Dreams on 71 at around 5 pm on Tuesday August 26th.
Two were sent home the same evening. One was airlifted to Dell Childrens and from their transported to Dallas in an induced coma - perhaps to have burns treated. The BCB Facebook page has the following:
"Latest update from his soccer coach:
We just got back from Dallas. his heart is working, but sporadic. His brain function is ok, from what they can see so far. His pupils are not fully responding. And, he is on a ventilator which is the only thing keeping him with us right now."
The boy is believed to be a pupil at Lakeway Elementary.
The LTYA has closed the field today and there have been calls for the installation of lightning detection equipment at the facility.
