Brazilian surfer struck dead by lightning flash

LUZIMARI Souza, a 23-year-old Brazilian surfer, died, tragically, on Wednesday morning, when she was struck by a flash of lightning while out at sea.

She had been training for the Brazilian National Championships, at a tourists’ beach in the north of the country, and was killed instantly.

The beach, in the city of La Fortaleza, is well known in the surfing community, and Luzimara was accompanied by other surfers. But although it was raining, it was no deterrent for the water athletes.

According to the medical team at Hospital Instituto Doutor José Frota, where Luzimara was taken, she didn’t suffer any pain.

Luzimara began her surfing career at the age of 10, and graduated to training daily at Playa del Mero, with members of the Cultural Sports Association.
