LONG BRANCH, New Jersey (WABC) -- A New Jersey man has died after being struck by lightning in Wednesday's storm.
Your odds of being struck by lightning in a given year are one in a million.
A father of four, a family man and a loving husband.
Neighbors say 41-year-old Sebastian Castillo and his wife are nurses.
They say Castillo loved to fish and be on the water, but it was while fishing Wednesday night with his 10-year-old son in Long Branch, New Jersey near this bridge that police say Castillo was struck by a bolt of lightning.
Long Branch police say Castillo's son ran to a nearby home and asked them to call for help.
Emergency responders rushed the boy's father to the hospital.
He died Thursday afternoon.
