Will lightning kill you if you are in a lake if it strikes the lake and how close would you have to be to the strike?

Lightning can kill you. either if your out or in the water it can kill you. since water is an excellent electricity current conductor you can be anywhere's in the water and if it strike the water you could be seriously injured. It is best to stay OUT of the water AT ALL TIMES during a lightning and/or thunder storm(lightning usually occurs where there is lightning!)
