A mango farm worker has died after being struck by lightning in the Darwin rural area last week.
The 34-year-old man died overnight on Sunday after the incident on November 23.
According to NT Worksafe, the 34-year-old was one of three foreign nationals working from the back of a trailer being towed by a tractor on a Berry Springs mango farm when lightning struck a nearby tree.
"It appears the lightning has arced from the tree towards the trailer injuring the three workers," NT Worksafe said in a statement.
The two other men, aged 30 and 31, were taken to hospital while the 34-year-old was admitted to the ICU in a critical condition.
"NT WorkSafe's enquiries are still ongoing to determine an appropriate regulatory response and we are unable to provide any further information," the statement reads.
"Once NT WorkSafe has sufficient information and clarity on the incident, an incident notification or safety alert will be published, if required."
A report will be prepared by police for the coroner.
