COLO, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say two men are recovering after being struck by lightning near a central Iowa golf course.

Story County Sheriff's deputies tell Des Moines television station KCCI that the men were in the Twin Anchors Golf Course parking lot near Colo on Friday afternoon when they were struck by lightning.

One man, who is in his 20s, was unresponsive but breathing when he was taken to an Ames hospital. The other man, who is in his 40s, was conscious and alert when he was taken to a Nevada hospital.

Both men had been released from the hospital by Saturday. The younger man says he has nerve damage and loss of hearing in one of his ears from the incident.
