According to a statement by the regional council, lightning struck in several areas of the Vieux Canal festival in the town of Azerailles.

The injured included several children who were sheltering in a tent, as well as a woman in her sixties and a 44-year-old man, who are both reported to be in serious condition, the BBC said.
