Lightning kills about 58 people a year.

Lightning kills about 58 people a year.

These victims are usually those that are caught outside during thunderstorms. However, lightning has injured–and even killed–those who have been indoors. 

Lightning strikes into the ground near homes, sending jolts through pipes and into sinks and bathtubs. Not only do metal pipes serve as effective conduits for these electrical charges, but it has even been reported that individuals standing near windows and talking on landline phones have also been injured by lightning.
