Lightning strike killed a farm worker on the Costa Blanca, Spain

Spring has definitely not arrived on the Spanish Costa Blanca with erratic weather bringing rain, strong winds and freezing temperatures for several weeks now.

In addition to news of floods, power outages and internet outages due to fallen trees, Mercia has suffered terrible tragedy after a farm worker died in a storm this week.

Sadly, the raging storm claimed the lives of a 45-year-old man in the municipality of Fuente Alamo, who was reportedly picking spinach in the Balsapintada countryside when he was struck by lightning.

Emergency services arrived at the scene at 1:46 pm, but unfortunately the man was pronounced dead after the arrival of paramedics.
