Hikers hit by lightning in Grand Canyon

(Thanks to AP) Authorities say two people were injured after lightning struck a trail area at Grand Canyon National Park. They say a 30-year old man and a 28-year old woman were found unresponsive on the Bright Angel Trailhead after a thunderstorm hit around 3-pm Tuesday. Park officials say the man regained consciousness without help, but CPR was needed before the woman regained a pulse. Both were taken to FMC with the woman transferred to a regional burn center. The names and hometowns of the man and woman weren’t released. Park officials say at least two other people drove themselves to the Grand Canyon Clinic with lightning splash injuries.
