Lightning strike at Mississippi military base sends 77 to hospital

[Updated at 6:15 p.m.] A lightning strike Wednesday afternoon sent 77 Air Force ROTC cadets to hospitals in the Hattiesburg, Mississippi, area, where they were all responsive and in stable condition, according to spokeswoman Maj. Deidre Musgrave of Camp Shelby.

Two of the 77 were sent by ambulance, and the remaining 75 were sent to the hospital by Camp Shelby buses, Musgrave told CNN.

All 77 were college students enrolled in the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps, which uses Camp Shelby as its summer training site, Musgrave said.

  3. Anthony's Case Posts

    I actually heard some news commentaries say they thought Biaz did a good job, they must not have listened to what he said. If this was an accident no one would have went to jail. Does her attorney really want us to believe the Police wanted this to be a murder so they covered up the drowning, George blamed this “accidental drowning” on Casey so she would have to go to jail, the meter reader must have been lurking around their house 24-7 knowing Caylee was going to die, he could follow George into the woods, dig up the body, save it just to put it back later inorder claim a reward, which everyone in Central Fl know it was if the child was found alive, even the meter reader. How did her little bones get scattered all over the wooded area unless it had been there quite awhile, they were scattered by animals, My God they had to sift through the debree for days to find as much of the remains as possible. Why didn’t Casey go to the police and tell them of here fathers cover up, then he would have went to jail and out of her life. The wooded area was under water for quite a while after the child was put there, you see we had a tropical depresson that soaked the gound and it stayed underwater for a long time. How did vines start to wrap around the remains, it had to be there for awhile for that to happen. Oh and where the hell did the meter reader hid the body? Goodness the police, the meter reader, george anthony, equa-search, seems everyone was involved in this consiracy to send Casey to prison. If the jury buys into this I will loose all faith in the justice system./

    I work M-F. I don't pack lunch. The office is near a farm. I just go to the zoo and feast on animal dunk. Ever so tasty and nutritious.
