Beausejour (St Lucia): Aug 7, 2013

A cricket fan in St Lucia died after he was electrocuted during a Twenty20 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) match between St Lucia Zouks and Antigua Hawksbills at the Beausejour Ground on Tuesday.

Julian Agard was electrocuted in the vicinity of the Laborie/Soufriere stands at about 10.30 p.m. local time while the game, a CPL preliminary round fixture, was in full swing, CMC reports.

Reports from Castries say Agard, a former police officer and basketball coach, was already dead when he was brought to the medical centre.

He was also a former member of the St Lucia Youth Council.

St Lucia Zouks lost the match by 33 runs as the Hawksbills got their first taste of victory in the tournament.
