Brock said the three of them gathered under a wooden shelter to avoid the rain when the lightning struck a pine tree adjacent to them. Brock said the girl was transported to Colquitt Regional Medical Center, where she later died. Her sister is recovering at a burn center in Augusta. Their mom was not hurt.
