Fourteen victims were killed on the spot as lightning hit the church in the Nyaruguru district on Rwanda.


Another two people later died of their injuries – with three people remaining critical, and 140 others being taken to hospital.

Local mayor Habitegeko Francois confirmed the details as he revealed a lightning bolt had hit the church which was packed with worshipers.

The severity of the injuries to the 140 people range from minor to critical according to doctors.

The mayor said that some of the people have been released while 3 people are listed in critical condition.

Al Waisman at Daily Vine reports that Governor Rose Mureshyankwano said that that oddly enough a similar incident occurred on Friday as lightning struck a group of 18 students, leaving one of them dead. And last October, lightning also killed 18 people in different parts of the country.

The likelihood of a lightning strike killing so many people at once is extremely low to the point of being unheard of. In the United States, about 50 people are killed by lightning every year, but these deaths usually take place when it’s a single individual, large groups and usually in open areas such as farms, rural areas or golf courses.

Lighting strikes are frequent across Rwanda which is a country covered in hills and mountainous regions, The Daily Star reported.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved.

God Bless.
