    5-year-old on vacation in N.C. dies after being struck by lightning

    Authorities say a 5-year-old boy on vacation with his family died after being struck by lightning on a North Carolina beach.

    According to WTVD-TV, authorities say the family was on the beach Sunday in Carova at about 4 p.m. when the child was struck.

    JUST HORRIBLE (my thoughts)

    The family put the boy in their SUV and met EMS partway. He was then taken to a hospital where he died.

    How horrible!! Chills ran through me as I read this. This is as shocking as the little boy at Disney World.

    May his family be wrapped in the arms of their religion

    Hi 1&2&3

    When I read this I thought of "Lane Graves" too and I teared up.

    I hope the family was not located on the beach during a thunderstorm, I do so pray.

    Another sad story 😭
