Lightning Strike Kills Three Soccer Players

Ordinarily, I like to keep the mood light here at The Rainout Blog, but I should mention the story out of Cambodia last week about three young soccer players – each were in their 20s – who were struck and killed by lightning during a tournament in the Southeast Asian nation’s capital. Three other players were hospitalized following the lightning strike. The game was being played during a monsoon-season thunderstorm. There’s a Reuters photo on the Web showing players carrying a teammate’s body off the field, but I’m not going to post it or link to it here. It’s easily Googled and found if you like looking at dead people. Not me.
