Air Force Reserve cadets were taken to a hospital after a lightning strike Wednesday afternoon at Camp Shelby in Mississippi.

In addition to the two cadets taken by ambulance, 75 others were taken by bus to a hospital as a precaution.

All are said to be in stable condition and responsive.

Camp Shelby is a training camp in southern Mississippi, near Hattiesburg.

Texas A&M University Corps of Cadets Air Force members train at that camp, and an A&M spokeswoman says 5 or 6 Aggie cadets are training there now. But it's not known if they were in the group near the lightning strike.
