Atlanta teacher tells of MT lightning rescue

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - The three people injured by a lightning strike in Glacier National Park last week were released from the hospital over the weekend, and Atlanta junior high teacher Steven Keith was happy to hear it.

Keith was among the first people to come upon Travis Heitman of Kalispell, Kensey Leishman of Missoula and an 11-year-old boy named Noah after they were knocked out by lightning that struck near them on July 17.

Keith tells the Missoulian (http://bit.ly/18xihZc) a woman named Beth started CPR on Heitman and he was amazed that his CPR training came back to him as he worked to revive Leishman. Keith says Beth spotted the boy lying unconscious several feet off the trail. Keith says it took longer to revive the boy.

All three were treated at the hospital in Kalispell.
