MAN KILLED BY LIGHTNING.
MACKAY, December 16.
John Ainsley Beldan, millworker of Marian, was killed instantly when lightning struck a holiday camp at Louisa Creek on Saturday.
His brother, Thoms Edward Beldan, 33, labourer, of North Eton, and Henry Andrew Oberin, 41, millworker, of  Marian, were knocked unconscious and suffered from shock.
Grace Huddlestone Beldan, wife of John Beldan, and her three children, William (8), Heather (5 1/2) and Edmund (4), were stunned and suffered shock.  Oberin and Mrs Beldan were allowed to leave hospital this afternoon.  The three children were not admitted.
Oberin said that Beldan was sitting on the end of a stretcher at the entrance to their tent fixing a toy boat for the children.  Mrs. Beldan was standing in front of him, with the three children on a stretcher opposite them, when the flash hit.
Oberin and Thomas Beldan who were outside the tent, were thrown about 12 ft. and knocked unconscious.  They did not see the lightning strike.
Oberin said that when he regained consciousness about five minutes later he thought he heard the children screaming.  He went into the tent and found John Beldan dead.  He staggered into the half light to seek help.  About a quarter of a mile away he could see a fisherman's house which he could see plainly in light from blinding flashes of lightning which, he said, seemed to be striking all round him. The fisherman phoned the Alligator Creek post office to call Sarina ambulance.
Police said they could see no signs where the lightning had struck the tent or the surrounding trees.  Oberin said that Beldan had been sitting on the end of the stretcher with his bare feet in wet sand.  The other three were all wearing sandshoes.
