The victims took shelter under a tree during the thunderstorm, an act that should always be avoided.

 On Friday, in Gurgaon, Haryana, India; a group of people were sheltering under a tree during the thunderstorm and were struck by lightning, resulting in the death of one man and three seriously injured. CCTV cameras recorded the moment when four men, gardeners by profession, were sheltering from the rain under trees. These images were hard-hitting and quickly spread on the Internet, showing how the four men were struck down with a thunderbolt after the impact.

According to DNA India, they have been rushed to the Medeor private hospital in Manesar. The men suffered severe burns, where one of them was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit in critical condition and died after a few hours. The other three remain hospitalized and are out of danger.
