Three people were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after being shocked in McLean on Tuesday afternoon, police and fire officials said.
First responders were called to the 8200 block of Greensboro Drive in McLean around 3:30 p.m. following an emergency call, a police spokesman said. The spokesman did not immediately have details about what caused the electric shocks, but said at least one of the victims was an adult male.
A Fairfax County police helicopter transported one of the victims to a burn center, while the other two were transported to the hospital by ground units. Additional details were not immediately available.
Police asked people to stay clear of the area.
Correction: An earlier version of this story said the three people were electrocuted. It has been updated to reflect that they were shocked and survived.
