    Mexico: two tourists die struck by lightning on a beach

    As the weather turned stormy, two men were killed by lightning on a beach in southeastern Mexico on Tuesday.

    Two tourists who were walking on a beach in the municipality of Aquila in Mexico died after being struck by lightning, local media confirmed on Tuesday.

    The two men were treated on the spot by emergency services who were unable to save them.

    Very quickly after the tragedy, a video circulated on social networks. We see two lightning strikes hitting two people walking on this beach, under a very threatening sky. In front of them, two other witnesses escaped unharmed, while screams were heard in the distance.

    In their recommendations to avoid lightning, French firefighters ask not to “stay on the beach and water points”. “The beach and more generally the seaside offering large expanses without particular relief are sources of danger in the presence of storms, explained the AP Foudre Association to our colleagues at Dauphine Libere. All shapes breaking this geometry constitute a privileged element for receiving an impact.”
