Thursday, August 6th, 2015. Orange Walk Bureau Reporting: The black spot on this open road network in the New Land Area of Santa Martha Village was the mark where 24 year old Johan Friesen was struck by a lightning bolt, fatally wounding him yesterday afternoon.
Reports are that yesterday around 2pm, Friesen along with two other siblings were heading home when along the way they were met with rain.
The trio reportedly started to run for shelter and in the process of doing so, a lightning bolt struck Friesen in the back of the head.
