In March 2012, a student was struck and killed by lightning on a Malaysian university football field while he was within the claimed protection zone of a French-made early streamer emission (ESE) lightning rod (i.e. air terminal).
Following the posting of the incident report, the authors were informed about a similar incident that had occurred recently at the Adventure Island theme park in Tampa, Florida,USA. In that incident, a young lifeguard supervisor of the park was struck and killed bylightning while he was on duty at the Key West Rapids water slide.
A survey of the park revealed that the water slide was located between two French-made ESE lightning rods. This suggests that the fatal incident was located within the claimed ESE protection zones of one or both lightning rods.http://www.lightningsafetyalliance.com/documents/Adventure%20Island%20Lightning%20Incident.pdf
