BEE CAVE, TX (KVUE/CNN) – Three little soccer players suffered life threatening injuries after being struck by lightning on the field on Texas.

Onlookers say there was not a cloud in the sky when the lightning seemed to appear out of nowhere.

First-responders arrived to find several children hurt on the field.

“We found a pediatric patient, male, who had been struck by lightning and was in cardiac arrest with [a] bystander CPR in progress. We were informed of a second first and then slowly a third trickled in as well. And so we did evaluate and subsequently transport two additional patients,” Captain Darren Noak of Austin-Travis County, TX EMS said.

The kids were part of the Lake Travis Youth Association.
