A man has been struck by lightning while working on a roof in Houston.

Harris County sheriff’s officials say storm clouds rolled into the area about 9 a.m. Sunday morning.

They say workers were clearing materials off the roof when the man was struck.

Authorities say his co-workers brought him to the ground and performed CPR before Harris County deputies and an ambulance arrived.

The 30-year-old man was taken to the hospital, where his condition is not known.

The man’s name was not immediately released.
