This is according to Gauteng Education spokesperson, Steve Mabona. He explains that the learners, who were standing under a tree outside the school, were struck by lightning during yesterday's thunderstorms experienced in different parts of the Vaal.
Mabona adds that the learners were taken to a local hospital where they received medical treatment. They have since been discharged from hospital.
Meanwhile, OFM News recently reported that as a result of strong winds and heavy rainfall on Friday, five people have been taken to hospital after the roof of a gas station fell on their vehicle in Sharpeville near Vereeniging in the Vaal Triangle.
