A 13-year-old Lancaster County boy was killed by lightning last evening while reportedly baling hay with his father.

They were on a farm on the 1100 block of Bartville Road in Sadsbury Township about 7:30 p.m., when the father, driving a team of horses, felt a tingling and heard a loud clap, then turned to see his son on the ground, according to Lancaster Online and WGAL-TV.

The boy, Levi Lantz, had been walking next to the baler.

It was a case of accidental death by electrocution, the county coroner's office ruled.

Sadsbury Township borders Chester County, about 20 miles west of Downingtown.
