A cricket fan in St. Lucia died after he was electrocuted during a Caribbean Premier T20 League (CPL) match between St. Lucia Zouks and Antigua Hawkbills at the Beausejour Ground Tuesday night.
Julian Agard was electrocuted in the vicinity of the Laborie/Soufriere stands at about 10:30 p.m. local time while the game, a CPL preliminary round fixture, was in full swing, CMC reports.
Reports from Castries say Agard, a former police officer and basketball coach, was already dead when he was brought to the medical centre.
He was also a former member of the St. Lucia Youth Council.
St. Lucia Zouks lost the match by 33 runs as the Hawkbills got their first taste of victory in the tournament.
