A Georgia teen died Wednesday afternoon, 11 days after he was struck by lightning on a Florida Beach.
Walker Bethune, 17, was just a few feet away from his family on Tigertail Beach, where they were vacationing on July 17, when he was struck, according to Marco Island police.
'Please know that today’s update comes with heavy hearts for ALL of us that LOVE Walker,' his family reported on social media Wednesday evening.
'He passed away peacefully this afternoon, listening to one of his favorite Allman Brothers songs, appropriately named, “Soulshine.”'
Police said they arrived on the scene at 3.51pm, shortly after the lightning strike, and saw Bethune's father, David, administering CPR on his son, who was unresponsive.
