Lightning strikes man in Kewaunee Thursday

Just after nine o'clock Thursday morning, a 30-year-old man was indirectly struck by lightning in Kewaunee. He was on the job as an employee of MJ Electric from Michigan. The worker was holding an uncharged power line when lightning struck the conduit. Kewaunee Police and Kewaunee Rescue responded. Assistant Chief James Kleiman Jr. was one of the officers on the scene.


Lightning strikes are rare and are treated similarly to exposure to an electrical shock. Kewaunee Rescue transported the man to Aurora Hospital for additional care. His status is currently unknown.
