Soccer player struck by lightning, killed during game in frightening video

A 35-year-old soccer player was struck by lightning and killed in a freak accident during a match in Indonesia — with the shocking tragedy caught on video.

Septain Raharja was in middle of a friendly game between his Football Boots Indonesia squad and FC Bandung on Saturday when he was struck down by the bolt and collapsed on the field around 4:20 p.m. Saturday, according to a report by The Independent.

The footage, which has circulated online, shows other players rushing to Raharja’s aid.

The injured footballer was still breathing when he was rushed to a local hospital but was later declared dead, according to the outlet.

According to reports, Raharja was just the latest soccer player struck down by lightning in recent years.

Last year, another player from Indonesia was knocked unconscious for 20 minutes after being hit by lightning during the Soeratin U-13 Cup.

In March 2004, soccer player Jiang Tao, 18, was killed while training at Singapore’s since-demolished Jurang Stadium after he was hit with a bolt while with Sinchi FC, the Independent said.
