Lightning struck a group of five swimmers at a state park in Monroe County, Pennsylvania last night, killing a teenager. Investigators say the group was swimming at Gouldsboro Beach in Gouldsboro state park in Coolbaugh Township.

Two 17-year-old boys and a 24-year-old man were in the water when the lightning bolt hit.

Two young girls, who were out of the water, were knocked to the ground.

One of the boys was pronounced dead at the scene. The two other swimmers were treated for minor injuries.
