Lightning kills couple

A hsuband and wife died on Tuesday after being struck by lightning during a thunderstorm in Oddar Meanchey province, a district official in Anlong Veng said.

The couple was killed after lightning penetrated the roof of their home and struck them.

“The bodies of Hab Hun, 22, and wife Try Srey Na, 24, were found with bruises on their chests,” said Anlong Veng district councillor Pov Roeun.

The couple’s two children, aged one and three and in the house at the time, were unharmed, he said.

Pov Roeun said that lightning killed one and injured another in Anlong Veng district last year.

Keo Vy, chief of cabinet at the National Committee for Disaster Management, said yesterday that deaths by lightning fell in 2010 compared with the previous year.
