TWO BROTHERS POSE FOR A PHOTO BEFORE GETTING STRUCK BY LIGHTNING
Two brothers pose for a photo in Sequoia National Park moments before getting struck by lightning in August, 1975.

Two seconds after Mary McQuilken snapped this shot of her brothers posing on top of Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park, California a powerful lightning bolt struck them. 


A hiker just outside the frame was killed and Sean (on the left) eventually also died from complications associated with his injuries. Michael McQuilken (on the right) survived. The family was hiking in the Sierra Nevada during August 1975 when the incident occurred.
