A fly-in fly-out worker remains in hospital after being struck by lightning, south-east of Port Hedland in Western Australia.
McConnell Dowell says two of its employees were injured as a result of a lightning strike during construction work on Fortescue Metals Group's Solomon rail line on Sunday.
One man was struck directly while the other was knocked to the ground by the force of the lightning.
The men were taken to Hedland Health Campus for treatment.
A 24-year-old man from Queensland suffered burns to five percent of his body.
He is said to be well and in a stable condition.
The other man has since been discharged after being treated for a minor neck injury.
McConnell Dowell says the workers were preparing to leave the area when the incident happened.
An investigation into the incident is underway.
