Abstract

A case of a lightning accident with eight victims is presented. The patients presented with typical injuries, such as cardiocirculatory arrest, apnea, burns, lightning paralysis, and rupture of internal organs. Two of three patients with cardiocirculatory arrest were successfully resuscitated. A brief description of the spectrum of typical lightning injuries, as well as the recommended therapy concepts, are given.
