It was a stormy day all over the state yesterday at given points and time. Glacier Park's unfortunate weather led to three injuries. Park officials believe lightning played a role in the injuries.

Park officials said three individuals, a male and female ages 23 and a child are believed to have been struck by lightning late Wednesday afternoon as they were hiking on the St. Mary Falls Trail on the East side of the Glacier National Park.

Park dispatch received a call at approximately 4:30 p.m. From a park interpretive ranger reporting that a group of hikers was believed to have been hit by lightning on the trail.

An alert helicopter from Kalispell and a Mercy flight from Great Falls were requested, and park medics were flown to the scene. Park crews and employees from all areas of the park responded to the incident.

The condition of the three individuals is considered to be serious but stable at this time. The incident is under investigation by the National Park Service.
