The man being carried away after the incident
In what will come across as a really startling development, a groom-to-be has been killed in China.
The man died after being struck by lightning as he was posing for engagement photos at a popular tourist spot.
The tragedy happened on Wednesday at China’s Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in the Yunnan province.
The man- who has been named by local media as Ruan – was hit by a lightning bolt during a wedding photoshoot with his fiancée at the Spruce Meadow, a popular scenic spot.
He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead, South China Morning Post reported.
The local weather authority had issued a thunder and lightning yellow alert – the third highest under China’s four-tier warning system – about half an hour before the lightning struck.
Despite the thunderstorm, the couple decided to go ahead with their planned photoshoot.
Those standing close to the victim remained unharmed.
Pictures showed the rescue crew carrying the man on a stretcher in heavy rain.
