Three airport workers are lucky to be alive after being struck by lightning.

It happened Monday (4-21) night at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. According to two of the men, they were just beginning their day when the lightning struck. They say they were resurfacing one of the taxiways when the bolt hit their co-worker and then hit them.

All three were taken to an area hospital where they were treated and released. They all plan to be back at work Tuesday (4-22).
