It is unknown if they were hit by a direct strike or injured by a nearby bolt, however Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Tampa Fire and Rescue said it doesn't appear the people were struck by lightning, but "knocked to the ground nearby."
Tampa Fire and Rescue said at least six were being treated by paramedics, and all of the victims were taken to a local area hospital. None of the injuries are fatal, according to Auman.
The injuries occurred in the parking lot at the north end of the stadium.
