Early reports coming out of the Cambodian city of Battambang indicate that a storm of 'biblical proportions' has passed through the area, nearly killing one man who was having his tea.
Moys Kenwood, 54, was enjoying his evening meal when a power cut at around 5:30pm plunged the household into duskness. His quick-thinking wife suggested that, as there was more light outside than there was inside, he should finish off his food al fresco, and an agreement was reached.
Ten minutes later, however, with thunder claps applauding all around him, and bolts of lightning seeking out his cutlery, Kenwood was forced to 'abandon play' for the day, and retreated to the relative safety of his by-now pitch-black living room.
As a parting shot, however, Thor - it wasThursday - threw down his own cutlery, a fork of lightning that was so close to the frightened Englishman, that, not only his tea, but also his dinner* nearly appeared once more in his frightened underpants. Said Kenwood:
"I'll stick to having me tea inside on Thursdays in future!"
