France, lightning on Lourdes funicular: 12 injured

The funicular is famous in the area as it allows you to admire the Pyrenees from the heights that surround the city of the cave of the Apparitions.

The abrupt interruption of electricity, caused by the lightning strike on the tracks, caused a sudden stop and a violent jolt inside the convoy, which was in the process of descending. About fifteen people ended up on the ground. The two most seriously injured are a couple in their fifties. An investigation has been opened on the incident.
