Exact Moment when Tourist is hit by lightning at a beach in Brazil

Itanhaém, SP, Brazil. 1st Jan, 2017:

Images show the exact moment when a tourist is struck by lightning at Praia do Sonho, in Itanhaém, on the coast of São Paulo.
Taline Campos, 25, had a cardiac arrest and was hospitalized in critical condition.
Taline walks quietly by the edge of the sea, even after the storm has formed. At one point she is struck by lightning and falls to the ground. Another person standing next to her was not injured.
Like Taline, other residents and tourists also chose not to shelter during the storm. In the video, it is possible to identify at least ten people, including children, within ten meters of the young woman, who walked alone at the time of the accident.
Bathers who were near the scene of the accident called the Urgent Service Mobile Emergency Service (Samu). The young woman was referred to the Emergency Care Unit (UPA) in Jardim Sabaúna, in a very serious state.
The woman's rescue was done in less than 15 minutes, and she needed to be sedated and intubated. In the morning of this Monday (2) she was transferred to a reference hospital in Greater São Paulo.
