Miami Lightning Kills 1, Injures 2

A lightning strike in metropolitan Miami Monday afternoon killed a man and injured two of his friends, police said.

Andres Telles, 31, and his friends, Fidelmar Montero and Miguel Lopez, were pressure-washing a tractor-trailer rig when the lightning bolt hit.

“We went outside, and all three of them were on the ground,” Janet Suarez told WSVN

Suzrez and her son administered CPR, but couldn’t save Telles, she said.

The injured men, Montero and Lopeze, were taken to a local hospital and are listed in stable condition, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.

It was unclear how close the men were to the spot where lightning struck.
