The family members of the two Korean volunteer workers who were killed by lightning arrived in Colombo, Sri Lanka in the small hours of Monday.

They went directly to the bodies of their loved ones. Kim Young-woo (20) and Jang Moon-jeong (24) were struck by lightning on Saturday evening in the mountainous Haputale region in central Sri Lanka.

The two were volunteers for Korea International Cooperation Agency, which implements aid programs in developing countries. At the time of the accident, they were visiting a fellow volunteer in Haputale.

KOICA is currently going through legal formalities to transfer the bodies, which are expected to arrive in Korea as early as Wednesday night.

KOICA says it will check the safety of workers stationed overseas and provide safety education for them.

The agency has about 1,300 workers serving on missions in 29 countries, 74 in Sri Lanka. (Source: chosun)
