Rotten Luck

How is this for rotten luck?

A lightning bolt killed a batsman during a game of cricket yesterday, the shock of electricity so intense it shattered his bat.

Fellow players watched in horror as the lightning struck 31-year-old David Evans on his helmet in a game at Bomaderry on the South Coast.

Bomaderry Cricket Club secretary Graeme Sawkins said: “It wasn’t even stormy at the time. We all said before the game started that if it was stormy then we’d stop play, but it was quite clear.

“David got up to bat and suddenly, out of the blue, a lightning bolt came down and hit his helmet, went through his body and shattered his bat.

About as rotten as this:

A man who won $57,000 in an Indiana lottery game taped for television died hours later after being hit by a pickup truck.
