The pass of DANA through the Mediterranean is leaving important damages throughout the region.

One of the most serious events occurred last Friday at Bellreguard beach. The impact of lightning struck two people who were on the shore. Lightning struck the sea and the electricity spread through the water to reach the affected, who were very close to the radius of action.

One of them went into cardiorespiratory arrest but, thanks to the rescuer maneuvers, the young man was already aware when the SAMU arrived.

The health workers took the other victim, a 50-years-old woman, to the Frances de Borja hospital in Gandía. She had severe pain in his leg due to fulguration.

It is vital to be informed of how to protect ourselves in case of being in the sea with storms. The first golden rule is to leave the water immediately and seek refuge. In case that we do not find shelter, it is best to crouch in a fetal position with your head between the legs. In addition, we must not use, under any circumstances, the mobile phone because it could act as a lightning rod.

Every precaution is small when it comes to a storm. In this article we give you some advice on what not to do during this atmospheric phenomenon.
