A teen-aged fisherman was killed after he was struck by lightning while fishing off Taluksangay last Wednesday.

Culianan Police Station Commander Chief Insp Hazel Fernandez identified the victim as Jakter Pailan alias Kingking, 15 .

Jakter was fishing with his father, Janla, at around 3pm during bad weather when the incident took place.

Janla looked on helplessly at his son who sustained burns and died on the spot.

The cadaver was brought immediately to the family home for burial rites.  (Dan Toribio)
