Further update on man struck by lightning on OBX

By on September 10, 2019

Early this morning (Tues. Sept. 10), the Voice published an excerpt from a GoFundMe page set up for Matthew Summerill, the young man who was tragically struck by lightning on Aug. 23 on the beach in Kitty Hawk. That excerpt said he was in a medically induced coma and noted that his prognosis appeared to be very dire. Since posting that, we have since been contacted by someone calling himself a “close friend” of the family who said that Matthew has passed away. We have not been able to confirm that information independently or learn further details at this point. We will update when we have more information and apologize for publishing what appears to be an outdated GoFundMe post.
