Light­ning strike

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

TWO ex­pla­na­tions for the fact that 80 per cent of light­ning strike vic­tims are men: ( 1) ‘‘ The men are the ones stand­ing in the thun­der­storm check­ing out the sky or play­ing golf while the woman sen­si­bly stays in­doors. The 20 per cent of women struck were prob­a­bly be­side their part­ners who called out, ‘ Hey hon, come and look at this’.’’; and ( 2) ‘‘ Men are more likely to keep on do­ing what they need to de­spite the weather, so are more likely to be struck.’’
