Lightning strike on Mexico beach kills two people
A man and woman were fatally struck by lightning on a Mexican beach after a dangerous storm rolled through.
Harrowing video footage shows the moment a hot bolt of lightning struck the beach in Michoacán while beachgoers were packing up to leave as dark skies rolled in.
The bolt struck the first person, causing them to fall onto the sand.
The lightning strike traveled up the sand, striking another person who was running to safety, a video circulating on social media shows.
The bolt caught the second victim, also causing them to fall face-first into the sand.
The male victim was taken to a hospital, where he later died, according to local outlet Marca.
Aquila Mayor Jose Valencia revealed the female victim was visiting from Guanajuato, while the male victim was a hammock seller, who resided in the nearby town of Colima.
