ST. JOE BEACH, Fla.  - A Georgia man has died after being struck by lightning during his Florida vacation.

The Gulf County Sheriff's Office says 40-year-old David Eugene Lee was hit Sunday while visiting a Panhandle beach with his wife and children.

They spotted gathering storm clouds and began to leave the beach when Lee's wife heard thunder. She turned around to find her husband collapsed.

Lee, whose hometown was not released, was pronounced dead after being rushed to a Port St. Joe hospital.
