Lightning Fatality at Baxter State Park

Boston.com reports a lightning strike killed 24-year-old Evans Huber of Peak’s Island at the Katahdin Stream campground on August 26 and hurt his brother 18-year-old Emmett Huber.

This was the third lightning fatality in the park.

In 1968 a man was struck and killed while in his tent at Chimney Pond, and in 1990, one fatality resulted when a Boy Scout troop was struck by lightning on Pamola Peak.
