“Barrera was found motionless. His co-worker was spoken to by police—one Earlin Romero, twenty-three-years—who reported to police that while they were on the farm Friday evening and walking towards a shed on the farm, lightning struck and apparently caused Jose to fall to the ground, which resulted in his death. His body was transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital where it is awaiting a post-mortem examination.”
