QCOSTARICA – Three American tourists visiting the Volcan Poas on Saturday got more than they had bargained for: they were struck by lightning during a heavy rainfall.

The lightning strike occurred at 12:30pm near the volcano’s crater, confirmed the Cruz Roja (Red Cross).

The foreigners were given immediate medical attention by Cruz Roja paramedics permanently stationed at the national park, and later taken to the San Rafael de Alajuela hospital, where they remain under medical observation.
