Soares said: "I was shooting in her direction. I followed her in and heard a very loud noise, an explosion and saw a light.

"I thought lightning had fallen on the car at first then I saw that it had hit her.

"It was total despair, people started running, call someone to help. Unfortunately, they could not revive her."
