Tropical weather makes Singapore one of the world's lightning capitals

Insurance manager Tan Boon Kiat, 37, was struck by lightning and died while canoeing at Pasir Ris Park. Tanah Merah, January 2011 Mr Chen Yuk Fu, 62, was hit while golfing at the 18th hole of the Laguna National Golf and Country Club's Masters course on New Year's Day. He was hospitalised but survived despite burns to his head, neck and hand. Tanah Merah, October 2009 Garment company owner Soh Lye Huat, 57, was struck by lightning at the 17th hole of the Tanah Merah Country Club Garden Course. He went into a coma and died from multiple organ failure two weeks later. His family sued the club in June this year. They claim that it failed to ensure there were effective procedures in place to warn golfers and others about lightning.
