Eight festivalgoers had to be taken to hospital with minor injuries on Tuesday after having been struck by lightning.
The lightening stroke at the on-going Peace & Love music festival near Borlänge, central Sweden.
“First we saw a lightning flash and then we heard a really loud clap of thunder. The next thing we knew, the ambulances had come,” said one witness, Amanda Andersen, to the Dagens Nyheter newspaper (DN).
However, no one was seriously wounded.
”They have no visible wounds, they were holding umbrellas and other objects that conduct electricity,” said Lena Sterner of the Dalarna county council to DN.
The confirmed lightning strike occurred around 3pm on Tuesday afternoon.
All the injured people were conscious when the ambulances arrived and despite being held at the hospital for observation, they are reportedly doing well.
However, according to yet uncorroborated information to the police, there was more than one lightning strike in the festival area.
“That could be correct. It could be people on the festival site as well that were injured. We don’t know yet if it was one or two lightning strikes,” said Sterner to DN.

It is always better for people to feel some pain on earth, than to face the eternal pain in Hell.
That is why I rejoice when pits of sin are feeling the heat from above. May they all leave their life as slave of sin, and turn to the living God, Jesus the Messiah.
If your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire.
Few of the participants in “peace and love” festivals have any fear of God, not any respect for the written Word.
I hope and pray that the Light of the World will be able to open their hearts and mind, and that the Holy sprit will be sent to save them. Amen.
