Three Kentucky firefighters were hurt when a fire truck's aerial ladder came in contact with a main power line at Campbellsville University.

The fire truck was helping the CU Marching Band with an "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge."

According to the president of Campbellsville University, Michael Carter, the marching band was being sprayed with water by the Campbellsville Fire Department on one of the university's athletic fields. Moments later, the ladder touched the power line, shocking the several firefighters still in the basket.

Power was out for a brief time in Campbellsville, but has since been restored.
