Lightning injures man

A 19-YEAR-OLD man was seriously injured after he was struck by lightning on Saturday in a rice field in Pursat province’s Krakor district, officials said yesterday. Ansar Chambak commune chief Lanh Sithon said that Chan Rasmey was being treated in hospital after he was hit by lightning as he led two cows through a rice field with his neighbour. “His neighbour and the two cows were not injured,” Lanh Sithon said. Keo Vy, cabinet chief at the National Committee for Disaster Management, said yesterday that 140 people had been killed by lightning so far this year. SEN DAVID
