Boater struck by lightning on Ohio River

-A A +A
By Tracy Harris

North Oldham was literally a lightning rod during recent summer storms, with emergency crews responding to at least four lightning-strike fires in two days.

The worst strike came July 19 while five people were on board a pleasure boat on the Ohio River.

Officials say boaters were headed back to shore when the storm hit.

Crews from North Oldham Fire and Oldham County EMS arrived just after 5:30 p.m. to find the boat had made it to shore near Sieg’s on the River, formerly Heather’s.
