Whenever a thunderstorm approaches and eventually bears down on us, many, including myself, always wonder where the hell is that lighting and what is it torching?
In this case, you don’t have to wonder.
On a beach in São Paulo, Brazil, photographer Rogerio Soares snapped a photo of some tourists doing what tourists do: not following the rules.
Warnings were placed to tell people to stay away from the beach during this type of weather, but for one unlucky beachgoer, it was a tragic mistake.
The photo actually shows traces of the lighting bolt that ultimately killed the woman. It’s a sad reminder to simply follow the rules.
However, some were luckier after multiple encounters with Thor’s lightning bolts.
