Hikers Hit By Lightning Still Don't Know Who Saved Them

Posted: Updated:
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK -

Three hikers struck by lightning in Glacier National Park earlier this week were released from the hospital Friday. Family members say 23-year-old Kinsey Leishman of Missoula, 23-year-old Travis Heitman of Kalispell, and an 11-year-old boy he was mentoring, are still sore and confused, but are now home.

Kinsey's father said the last thing any of them remembered is hurrying to their car because a storm was coming.

Park officials said the three were unconscious, and not breathing when they were found by other hikers. The hikers performed CPR on the three and called for medical help.

The Leishmans said they still don't know the names of the hikers who saved their daughter.

"I would want to let them know how grateful we are for them being there, number one, and number two, them doing CPR, to knowing how to react, and do CPR and what needed to be done to save her," said Kinsey said.

The Leishman's said their daughter and her friends are still sore, and a bit confused. They said sheriff's have the names of the hikers who saved her, and hope to reward them at a ceremony the Leishman's said they hope to attend.
