FOUR PEOPLE HIKING in southern Polish mountains have been found dead after apparently being struck by lightning.
Those who died included a couple aged in their 50s, their daughter and her boyfriend. They were last seen on Wednesday, when they had gone off trail in order to search for shelter from a violent storm, the BBC reports.
Their bodies were discovered yesterday in a ravine in the Pieniny mountains.
Polish authorities are trying to establish an exact cause of death, with rescue official Mariusz Zarod telling reporters: “It is extremely rare for a single bolt of lightning to kill four people”.
The victims were all from Warsaw, Fox reports.
