Lightning bolt kills, injures 6 in southern Mexico

A lightning bolt has struck a soccer match in southern Mexico, killing two men and injuring six others, police said Saturday. Prosecutors in the Pacific coast state of Guerrero said the local match pitted firefighters against civil protection officials. Mexican news media reported that electrical storms had been reported in the area, but the Friday match went on anyway at a local sports field. A report by the prosecutors' office said one player from each side died. The six injured all suffered second-degree burns and were being treated at local hospitals. There was no information on their condition.
