A child—still critical—after strong storms this week


DANVILLE – A child, badly hurt by a falling tree, is still in Geisinger in critical condition. A nursing supervisor at the medical center says the child, 11-year-old Caitlyn Keeney of Northampton County, is still in intensive care. The girl was hurt Tuesday afternoon at Knoebels Amusement Resort when part of a tree fell on the family campsite.


Several members of the Keeney family were hurt too—41-year-old Scott, 8-year-old Ryan, and 4-year-old Grace, were all in the hospital for a time, and have since been discharged. The injuries occurred when strong storms crossed The Valley Tuesday about 4:30pm. Numerous power outages were also reported.
