There was pandemonium in Atlanta when unexpected lightning strikes led to the injury of several spectators at the PGA championship, on Saturday 24th of August.
A lightning strike had hit a 60-foot pine tree at the Golf tour championship and caused it to shatter all the way to the bottom.
Five spectators including four adults and one female teenager had been injured as they’d taken shelter beneath the tree after the suspension of the event for 30 minutes due to storms.
“One strike occurred near the maintenance area, while another struck a tree near the 16th tee. Debris from that strike injured six people” the organizers said in a statement.
The five individuals were transported to area hospitals after being treated by paramedics while one was treated and released on-site. The injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, the statement added.
