    A 32-year-old man was struck by lightning and killed in a Long Island park, officials said.

    Aneal Lall, who was from Richmond Hill in Queens, was standing under a tree adjacent to a boardwalk at Sunken Meadow State Park around 6:50 p.m. on Saturday when he was struck, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation said. 

    Emergency personnel responded immediately and performed CPR before taking Lall to St. Catherine’s Hospital in Smithtown, the spokesman said.

    Lall was pronounced dead at the hospital, he added.
