Port Orange death on roof could be Florida's 3rd lightning-related of year


ORLANDO, Florida — A man killed who died while working on a roof in Port Orange may be the third reported death this year from a lightning strike.

The Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1JdfVkr ) reports that 25-year-old Steven Lee Gang was pronounced dead at the scene Friday afternoon by authorities.

An autopsy is pending to determine an official cause of death. The incident remains under investigation.

Last week, an 81-year-old man in Largo was killed after being struck by lightning while walking down the street. In May, a Naples man was hit while working on a home that was under construction.
