One man was hospitalized while the others suffered minor injuries.

Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash said the lightning struck about 4 p.m. Tuesday.

He said a 57-year-old man, whose name was not released, was taken to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Mr. Nash said his condition was not available but some bystanders performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on him before rangers arrived.

Seven others complaining of shortness of breath, tingling or numbness were treated at Old Faithful Clinic and released, while a ninth person struck did not seek medical attention.
