Authorities say a Utah man and his dog are dead after they were struck by lightning during a fishing trip at a mountain lake.
The Garfield County Sheriff's Office says 24-year-old Jesse King of Bicknell and his pet died over the weekend during a storm on Boulder Mountain.
Authorities say King and his dog sought shelter under a tree. They died instantly when they were hit.
King leaves behind a wife of one year. She was at a nearby campsite and found his body.
The sheriff's authorities say that King did everything to keep himself and his dog safe but that nothing could've prevented their deaths.
