EVANSVILLE — A man who was struck by lightning last week while working on the roof of a southwestern Indiana warehouse has died from his injuries, a coroner said.
Jose Louis Lopez Mora, 34, died Sunday afternoon while the Seymour man was undergoing treatment at an Evansville hospital, said Vanderburgh County Coroner Steve Lockyear.
Lopez Mora’s death was ruled an accident, and no autopsy is scheduled, the Evansville Courier & Press reported.
He was struck by lightning last Wednesday while working on the roof of an Evansville warehouse that's leased by Berry Global. The company earlier told the Courier & Press that the victim was employed by a contractor hired by the building’s owner.
It wasn't clear which contractor Lopez Mora had been working for and why he was on the roof during a thunderstorm, the newspaper reported.
