According to Ros├óngela’s husband, his wife had gone to tell his son and nephews, who were swimming in the sea, to get out because of the bad weather.

As she stepped into the water she was hit by a single bolt of lightning.
 ‘The weather started to close in and we decided to leave. I was putting our bags into the car, and the kids were on the beach.

‘The next minute my wife was lying on the floor. I received a mild shock,’ said a distraught Leandro Lopes Santos.

According to the Biavati, another sister who was standing near to Roseangela when the lightning struck received a black eye.

‘We are in a state of shock. My brother-in-law is devastated by the sudden death of his wife. We can’t believe how it happened – it could have been any one of us,’ the victim’s brother said.
