    Here were some people "taking in the sun" and wound up in a lightning storm at 13,000 feet.

    where the heck do you go when its lightning bad and you are at 13,000 feet????

    GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. -- Rangers in Grand Teton National Park were able to rescue 16 injured climbers who were caught in a lightning storm on Wednesday afternoon. They suffered severe injuries from indirect electrical charges radiating from the lightning. The climbers had reached elevations above 13,000 feet on the mountain.

    Teton Interagency Dispatch Center received an initial cell phone call at 12:25 p.m. on Wednesday from one group. The dispatch center eventually received calls from two more groups requiring assistance.

    The rescue operation involved a sequential evacuation of the 16 climbers. As weather conditions improved the aerial evacuation continued until all the injured persons were delivered to the valley floor. Waiting ambulances then transported them to St. John’s Medical Center.

    Grand Teton Spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs confirms the seventeenth climber has been found dead by rescue crews.
