A 20-year-old man is in critical condition in Limassol Hospital and his 61-year-old uncle sustained burns after they were hit by lightning as they took cover from the rain under a tree in Ayios Yeorgios Alaminos in the Limassol district.
The two hunters were out hunting on the first day of the season. With them was the 12-year-old brother of the 20-year-old who was not hurt.
The 20-year-old is in the intensive care unit while his uncle sustained burns. He is described as being out of danger.
