Lightning strike kills one man, two cows

A lighting strike during dry season rains killed a 22-year-old man and his two cows in Kampong Speu province’s Oral district. Som Putdara, Oral district military police commander, identified the man as Nhem Peah from Lvea Te village, and said he died instantly alongside his cows as he drove his cart back from the forest, where he was looking for firewood. Keo Vy, cabinet director of the National Committee for Disaster Management, said lightning killed 114 people and 65 animals, wounded 58 people and destroyed 3 homes last year.
