It was an ordinary day for seven College of Idaho students, as they hiked among the hills. Enjoying each other’s company, they were blissfully ignorant of the dark clouds rolling in. Then, in a flash, it happened. They all fell to the ground like a bolt of lightning after being struck by, well…a bolt of lightning.
Luckily, a group of fellow C of I hikers came by several minutes later. The scene they encountered was shocking. But equipped with wilderness first responder tools, they quickly sprang into action assessing the needs of their fallen comrades.
