Six people were injured while watching the PGA Championship tour after massive lighting strike!
The PGA Championship tour in Atlanta, GA was interrupted on Saturday after a massive lightning bolt struck down sending debris flying.
Sources say that six people were struck by the debris including one kid. Thankfully no one was hit by the actual bolt itself. No one is said to have suffered life-threatening injuries.
This all happened at the East Lake Golf Club at approximately 4:45 PM ET while golfers were in the middle of their third round of the FedEx Cup Championship.
When paramedics arrived, they were able to treat many of the injured on the green. Witnesses say that the lightning sounded like there was like a bomb going off on the course.
In a video shared on twitter, you can see the lightning hitting the tree causing a bright spark. Many in the area were physically knocked down due to the blast.
As of now, all the games were suspended with the tournament expecting to resume Sunday morning.
