TOP FEMALE SURFER KILLED BY LIGHTNING STRIKE —————–By Staff —————–Mon., Mar. 22, 2021

Katherine Diaz — one of El Salvador’s top surfers — died on Friday after she was hit in a lightning strike during a training session near her home.

The 22-year-old rising star — who had been gunning to compete for El Salvador at the Olympics in Tokyo — was surfing at a spot called El Tunco when the lightning storm hit.

Katherine’s uncle Beto Diaz told a local media outlet his niece had gone to hug a friend she spotted at the surf spot when lightening struck.

“She, the friend, was thrown by the force of the lightening strike too, the board threw me back. Katherine died instantly.”

Emergency personnel reportedly raced to the scene and scrambled to revive Diaz … but it was too late.

Diaz was a rising star in the sport and beloved by the surf community in El Salvador.

She was expected to compete in the ISA World Surf Games in May — the event is a qualifier for Olympics in Tokyo.

The International Surfing Association issued a statement on her death … saying, “It is with a heavy heart that the ISA has learned about the passing of El Salvador’s Katherine Diaz.”

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
