happy because we have had scarcity of rains this year, but
the thunder and lightning that accompanied the rain
scared everyone.

loud screams and wailing which compelled people to
scamper for safety.
¡°In the mist of that confusion, we discovered that the two
victims were struck to death by the lightning.

by taking them to a hospital for medical attention, which
was however too late in coming because they were already
dead.¡±
