Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sat May 25, 2019 4:37 pm

Cambodia News (Kampong Thom): On 23 May 2019, at 4:30 pm, a family of 3 people died after getting struck by lightning in Cham Pkar village, Sandan district, Kampong Thom. The victims were identified as Choy Len, 28-year-old man, Chea Sokhorn, 27-year-old woman, and their 3-year-old son, Leng Chenglea.

The victims were growing potatoes on their farm when a heavy rainstorm came up, so they took their son to shelter under a mango tree. Then a bolt of lightning struck all three of them, killing them instantly. RIP.
