A spokeswoman for Poland’s air ambulance service has said four people have been killed and more than 30 injured when lightning struck different locations in the Tatra mountains.

Kinga Czerwinska told TVN24 that lightning hit Giewont peak, a popular trekking destination, and other locations on Thursday in the mountains in southern Poland. She said some of the injured were brought by helicopter to the hospital in Zakopane in the Tatras, while others were taken elsewhere.

Witnesses said the thunderstorm came suddenly on a day that began with clear weather.
