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

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

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.
