A New York woman who was struck by lightning while visiting the New Jersey shore has died.
 
The Asbury Park Press reports 48-year-old Indira Tursunova of New City died early Sunday at a hospital, several hours after she was struck while walking on a sea wall in Monmouth Beach.

  Authorities say Tursunova was at a beach in the Monmouth County community with several relatives and friends when a line of strong, fast-moving storms blew through the region. She was about 20 feet behind the others in her group when she was struck.
 
A Monmouth Beach police officer who happened to be nearby saw what happened and tried, along with others on scene, to revive Tursunova before she was taken to the hospital.
 
No other injuries were reported.
