Amid severe weather conditions and a dangerous thunderstorm passing through Dresden, a major lightning bolt left many people injured in the German city on Monday. At least ten people were wounded in the incident reported by the local media. Emergency crews are responding to the scene located near Rose Garden on the banks of Elbe Valley. Among those injured, two were resuscitated after suffering cardiac arrest from the lightning strike in the evening.
The lightning bolt was sparked by a "violent thunderstorm" that approached the German city of Dresden. A spokesman from the Desden Police closed the area, where the incident happened. As part of the emergency response, a fire brigade was reportedly called on people in the area at the time the lightning strike occurred. The crews responded to the scene by immediately providing medical assistance to the people in the area, who had shown some or the other symptoms.
The local fire department officials confirmed to Dresden Radio that the other eight people were taken to the nearby hospitals. They complained of typical symptoms after a lightning strike, such as tingling in the extremities.
“Anyone who feels numb in their arms and legs should go to the hospital,” the outlet quoted fire department spokesman Michael Klahre as saying.
Meanwhile, the cops advised people to avoid the area where the lightning strike took place. A helicopter was also tasked to cordon off the area. The authorities are further assessing the situation if anyone else got injured. The possibility of more victims with injuries due to the strike or its impact cannot be ruled out, they said.
