Lightning Strikes Mennonite Farmer

A Mennonite community up north is grieving the unexpected death of one of its own. A freak accident on Wednesday associated with a tropical wave passing through the north took the life of twenty-four year old Johan Friesen of a Mennonite community fifteen miles from the Santa Martha Village on the Old Northern Highway. Heavy rains were pounding the area bringing with it with thunder and lightning.  Just before three o’clock, the Mennonite farmer of Camp Three in the Newland Community was working his farm when he was struck by a bolt of lightning. He died instantly and his body was transported to the Northern Hospital.
