A bolt of lightning has killed four members of the same family in Poland.
The group were reported missing last week - after they failed to return from a hiking trip.
A rescue operation was launched and last night the bodies of a 50-year-old man and woman from Warsaw, were found, along with the remains of their 22 year old daughter and her fiancé.
Witnesses said an unusually violent thunderstorm - punctuated by multiple lightning strikes - had raged in the area where the bodies were found.
Authorities say it is extremely rare for a single bolt of lightning to kill four people an investigation has been launched to establish the exact cause of their deaths.
