Two Malawian girls have died while another one is battling for her life at Mzuzu central hospital after lightning struck them at a Catholic Church in Mzimba.
Witnesses told Malawi24 that there was a heavy downpour that was accompanied by intense lightning on the day of the tragedy.
The trio was still in church waiting for the rain to stop when unfortunately lightning struck them.
The two died on the spot while one was rushed to Mzimba district hospital where she was quickly referred to Mzuzu central hospital for advanced medical attention.
Northern region police publicist, sergeant Maurice Chapola, identified the two who died as 17 year-old Maria and 13 year-old Kistna Msimuko.
But Chapola said he was yet to identify the one battling for her life at Mzuzu central hospital.
