Teenager killed by lightning in Florida

A high school football player was killed and several people were injured by lightning in Californian school stadium.

Schaffner Noel, 15, was hit in the chest Wednesday and transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Coconut Creek police spokeswoman Judy Banks said.

Another junior varsity player and a cheerleader who had been standing next to Noel were injured. They were hospitalized in serious but stable condition, Banks said.

Ten other students and a police officer knocked down by the strike were treated at Monarch High School for cuts, bruises and abrasions, Banks said.

Witnesses said referees had stopped the football game because of thunder. The students were coming off the field when Noel was struck, Banks said.

Coaches, faculty and students had little warning of the thunderstorm, which moved in quickly, she said.

Noel's brother Wagner, 16, who plays varsity football at the school, described a chaotic scene after the lightning struck.

"We were starting to walk in and we saw the junior varsities walking in too and then we saw this huge lightning. It seemed like it hit the field, so everybody started running."

P.T.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

Italy: Free fall

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
