According to the authorities, several sugarcane harvesters along with their children were taking a rest after lunch time when the rain poured.

To avoid becoming very wet, they sought shelter underneath a tree.

However, to their shock a lightning struck the tree.

Six of them were declared d**d upon arrival at the Sipalay Hospital.

The others are currently being given medical treatment.
