BUENOS AIRES - Racing Club masseur Cesar
Nardi died after being struck by lightning during a team
training session outside Buenos Aires, the Argentine first
division side said.
Nardi, who was 61 and had worked with Racing since 2001, was
struck by the lightning during an electric storm on Tuesday when
he went to recover a ball near a water tap. He was taken to
hospital but did not survive.
"We are saddened to inform of the death of our employee
Cesar Nardi 'Chechu' during training of the professional squad,"
Racing said in a statement.
Two other people died after being struck by lightning during
the storm in the Greater Buenos Aires area.
