Two of the 12 soldiers who were hurt when lightning struck near them during a training exercise in Colorado are still in the hospital.

Officials at Fort Carson said Thursday that one soldier is in serious condition and the other is in stable condition.

The ten other soldiers who were injured when lightning struck at the Army post near Colorado Springs on Wednesday afternoon were released from the hospital later that evening.

The soldiers had been in training but were heading toward shelter when the lightning struck. Medics who were present for the training treated them until emergency responders arrived.
