Police officer and helicopter pilot struck on the way to help victims of earlier blast in Fribourg canton of Switzerland

Lightning never strikes twice, until it does: a police officer and helicopter pilot rushing to help two people injured in a lightning strike on Friday were themselves also hit, Swiss authorities said.

A 51-year-old man and 16-year-old boy were struck by lightning around 8.30am while working in a field in Ménières, in the western canton of Fribourg, regional police said in a statement.
