Fifty-one concertgoers were hurt and nine sustained serious injuries when a
single lightning bolt struck a mast at the eastern German festival With Full
Force Saturday night. According to Spiegel Online, the lightning
strikes sent some music fans flying through the air — and left behind a
wasteland of destroyed tents, panicked guests and a venue flooded with mud and
deep puddles. Emergency services spent several hours at the scene treating those
who had been sheltering in a cocktail bar near where the lightning struck,
