The incident occurred at approximately p. Authorities say that they received a call saying that the year-old girl had possibly been struck by lightning while swimming in the ocean and that lifeguards had already arrived on scene to register aid to the victim.
The Tybee Island Police and Fire Department personnel were immediately dispatched to assist and, when authorities arrived, they saw that the victim had already been removed from the beach and was being given CPR. Authorities said that the transport units subsequently met up with an ambulance on Highway 80 and she was turned over into their care and escorted to a nearby landing zone to await the arrival of the medical helicopter.
However, a short time later, medical services on scene decided it would be better to continue to transport the year-old rather than wait for the helicopter and continued on their way to the hospital.
The victim, who had been visiting Tybee Island from Alabama, was subsequently pronounced deceased from her injuries suffered while swimming after she arrived at the hospital. An average of 49 people are killed after being struck by lightning every year in the United States with hundreds more injured, according to the National Weather Service.
