A fisherman in a boat was struck by lightning in north-central Minnesota and airlifted to a Twin Cities hospital for treatment, authorities said Monday.

Wei Wei, 48, of Iowa, was with two others in the boat Sunday morning on Baby Lake near Hackensack at the time of the strike, according to the Cass County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities have yet to reveal his condition.

The other two with him, while not struck by lightning, were treated at a hospital in Brainerd, the Sheriff's Office added. They were identified as 18-year-old Max Wei and a boy whose age and identity were withheld.
