Ottumwa, Ia. -AP-
Edward M. Mason, 56, a farmer two miles south of Ottumwa, was killed when struck by lightening about 7:15 a.m. Monday, according to County Coroner Gordon Traul.
Mason had apparently sought shelter from a rainstorm beneath a tree in a pasture lot when the bolt struck, shattering the tree trunk and entered the body.
The body was found several minutes later by the farmerís mother, Mrs. Jane Mason.
