The Parents Of Las Cruces Boy Who Was Struck By Lightning Release A Statement About His Condition

Earlier this week, a Las Cruces boy was hurt badly when lightning struck the field where he and his football team were practicing. His family has released a statement about his condition.

13 year old Hunter Keffer plays football for Picacho Middle School. He and five others, including two coaches, were hurt when a thunderstorm produced a lightning bolt that struck the field where they were practicing. His parents, Rick and Mitzi, say Hunter is slowly making improvements and getting better every day. They called Hunter “a fighter”, who is working very hard to get well.

The Keffers thanked friends, family, and the Las Cruces community for all the kind words and prayers they have gotten since the frightening incident. They also thanked Chris Herrera, Anna Krause, all first responders, and the staff from Mountain View Medical Center in Las Cruces, for their help when Hunter was first injured. The Keffers also expressed gratitude to all the doctors and nurses at El Paso Children’s Hospital who are helping Hunter in his recovery.

We here at KISS-FM are praying for Hunter, and all those who were injured. We hope they get well soon.
