Tragic School Incident

Very sad article about a freak incident that happened at a school where my mom was supply teaching. She left a few hours prior to the incident so thankfully never saw it happen. She emailed me about it last night and then I found the article online.

Soccer practice had been cancelled on Wednesday due to a thunder storm, and while a few of the kids were waiting for their parents to pick them up, they went onto the soccer field to kick the ball around. One grade 8 student was struck by lightning and died. The two students that were beside him were thrown a ways but otherwise were ok.

Quite tragic.
