Two children, one adult struck by lightning in Patterson Park on Saturday, police say

Two children and an adult were hospitalized after they were struck by lightning Saturday afternoon in Patterson Park, city police and fire officials said.

Fire Chief Roman Clark said Sunday afternoon that the condition of all three victims had improved and they were now stable.

The two children, ages 4 and 7 years old, were taken to the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, police spokeswoman Det. Chakia Fennoy said. The 39-year-old adult was taken to a nearby hospital, Clark said.

The victims were injured shortly before 4 p.m. during a brief storm.

Clark said the adult and children were near the tennis courts at the park.
