Three people died on Sunday evening after they were struck by lightning in two separate incidents in Kampong Speu province’s Odong district, officials said yesterday.
District Governor Pol Noa said that two 12-year-old girls were killed by lightning when chasing after their cows in a rice field. He added that in a separate case on the same day, an 18-year-old man in the district was killed by lightning as he worked in his rice field. Keo Vy, cabinet chief at the National Committee for Disaster Management, said yesterday that lightning had killed 70 people and injured 61 so far this year.
