    Jennie Dizon, 17, who was discovered not breathing in Downers Grove’s O’Brien Park Thursday afternoon, was pronounced dead at the scene and the DuPage County Coroner’s office ruled her death to be “consistent with a lightning strike,” reports NBC Chicago.

    The Benet Academy high school senior was scheduled to graduate Sunday.

    “It was God’s will,” her father, Eric Dizon, said Friday.

    Dozin had dropped her younger brother and sister, Emmeline Dizon at a dental office and probably went to the park to journal, according to her parents. When she didn’t come back to pick them up, her family became concerned, but did not suspect anything was seriously wrong until police came to their door.

    Walking home, Emmeline saw ambulances in the park but walked right by her sister without even knowing it.
