www.dailymail.co.uk said:

A father-of-one has been killed after being hit by a bolt of lightning while drinking a cup of tea in a 'freak' one in ten million accident.

Bricklayer Justin Feber's distraught colleagues saw a huge flash and a heard an ear-splitting bang, saying a storm seemed to just appear above them near Crewe, Cheshire.

The 41-year-old, from Haslingden, Lancashire, was not touching anything metallic and was standing with both feet on the ground when he was hit on Wednesday.

As well as his parents Jack and Carol, Mr Feber leaves two brothers, Jason and James, and his six-year-old daughter Libby.

Health and safety experts said today five people on average are killed by lightning each year in the UK - making this tragic fatal strike incredibly rare.

Poor guy.  I can't imagine he ever felt anything.  Here one moment and gone the next.  In Alabama we average almost 2 deaths per year over any decade.  Summer is serious down here.  Very hot and incredibly humid for about six months of the year.  When the lightning starts, I head for shelter.

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...
