If you ever thought YOU were in the wrong place at the wrong time

A
British officer, Major Summerford, while fighting in the fields of
Flanders in February 1918 was knocked off his horse by a flash of
lightning and paralyzed from the waist down. Summerford retired and
moved to Vancouver. One day in 1924, as he fished alongside a river,
lightning hit the tree he was sitting under and paralyzed his right
side.

Two
years later Summerford was sufficiently recovered that he was able to
take walks in a local park. He was walking there one summer day in 1930
when a lightning bolt smashed into him, permanently paralyzing him. He
died two years later. But lightning sought him out one last time. Four
years later, during a storm, lightning struck a cemetery and destroyed
a tombstone. The deceased buried here? Major Summerford.
