Five workers on a cassava farm were injured by a lightning strike in Battambang province’s Kamrieng district on Sunday, district police chief Chhem Kimhong said.

“The lightning struck when they were preparing a pump to draw water from a well to the plantation,” he said.

The victims — Hup Rithy, 31, Bus Bel, 28, Buth Chun, 31, Keat Seyha, 17, and a woman, Bus Bull, 35 — were were sent for treatment at the district hospital by plantation owners. In 2012, lightning strikes killed 103 people.
