Lightning bolt kills farmer in Cambodia; third such death within a week

Lightning struck and killed a woman on Saturday afternoon as she was farming in heavy rain in Battambang province's Phnom Prek district.

Thoy Sok, 34, was struck at about 2:30pm during an unseasonal dry-season storm, the National Police website said yesterday.

"She died in her rice field instantly," it said.

On Friday, two separate lightning strikes killed a woman and injured three, one critically, in Battambang province.
