Lightening Strikes Two Footballers Down During Match


Lightning (Thunderbolt) has struck down two young footballers during a football match in Jamaica over the weekend.

Two schools, Wolmer’s Boys’ School and Jamaica College were playing a match at the Stadium East field in Kingston when the footballers collapsed.

Wolmer’s were said to be leading 2-1 in the second half when the thunderbolt hit and caused four players to fall to the floor.

JC player Terrence Francis and Wolmer player Dwayne Allen were both rushed to University Hospital in West Indies for observation.

Local media reported that Francis was moved off the field when he wasn’t responding to treatment and Nickache Murray, another of his teammates was later admitted after “complaining of chest pains”.

The Jamaica Gleaner added that he was held overnight after The Inter-Secondary Schools Association said tests were done and “ECG showed irregularities.”

The ISSA later revealed that Allen and Murray has since been discharged from hospital while Francis has shown “significant improvement,” and is now in a stable condition.

Footage of the shocking incident is now doing the rounds on social media which shows two players drop and clutch their heads after lightning strikes.
