Eight people injured as lightning strikes SeaWorld

Eight people have been injured as lightning struck the SeaWorld Orlando theme park.

Three guests and two employees at the Discovery Cove water park were taken to a local hospital as a precaution.

The other three workers were taken to a local care facility.

None of the injuries were reported to be life-threatening.

Fire crew were called to the attraction at around 5.05 pm local time, about the time a storm was passing through Central Florida that forecasters had warned could produce "excessive" lightning.

A Seaworld spokesman said the guests were in a patio area and the employees in an Adventure Photo cabana.
