BOLT IN STORM KILLS IDAHOAN
Youth Dies While Driving Buggy;
Brother Suffers Injury From Shock

Malad, Idaho - One of five brothers, driving home in a buggy from work in the fields, was killed by lightning at 7 p.m. Monday a quarter of a mile south of here. A second brother was rendered unconscious for about half an hour, while the other three were knocked from the rig by the force of the bolt, but otherwise were uninjured.
Albert Madsen, 16, was killed; his brother, Ray, lost consciousness, while Dee, Clifford, Ray (sic) and Reed Madsen were not hurt. All are the sons of Mr. and Mrs. Franklin Oliver (Mary Ann Dalton) Madsen. The dead youth is the third oldest in the family.
The boys had been working in a field ten miles south of here, and when they neared town an electrical storm arose. The bolt struck and killed one of the pair of horses Albert was driving and the electricity followed up the lines, killing the youth.
