77 cadets at a US Air Force base in Mississippi were sent to the hospital Wednesday after lightning struck their base, the AP reported.

According to an army spokesperson, the lightning struck a metal pole near the cadets' tents. No one was seriously injured but the cadets were examined by doctors to be sure.
