Here is the shocking moment lightning struck players in a Cup football match between Wolmer's Boys' School and Jamaica College (JC) at the Stadium East field, resulting in the match being called off, MySportDab reports.
Jamaica College player, Terrence Francis, along with Dwayne Allen of Wolmer's, were both taken to hospital for observation after the incident, with Francis having to be stretchered off the field after he failed to respond to treatment on the field of play.
It is understood that the incident occurred in the 84th minute of the contest, when four players collapsed — two from each team.
Referee Karl Tyrell called off the contest and the four players were attended to, but Francis's condition appeared more serious.
Allen, who along with three of his teammates and another player from JC, went down immediately after the flash of lightning, got up and seemed okay at first.
