  2. The headline is a bit misleading – sounds like a croc killed one lightning out of 3 which struck the other crocs.

    Anyhow, sorry for the victims. This is Africa – survival of the fittest.

  3. #2. I like your contributions and comments but I think the head line is clear since there is a comma. But however we were suppose to be told what was struck or killed.

  4. I must say title is very funny! My condolences to the bereaved families. But how did they know the other croc victim was killed when they did not even find any remains? Witnesses perhaps?

  5. I heard on Muvi Tv that people have been turning into crocodiles and killing people. Is it because of hunger or what?

  8. What is important is that the message is put across linguistics is a tricky subject, it needs experts to correct mistakes. A sad story indeed. Why is Africa prone to lightening? Some countries (like here) has never experienced lightening, students just read about it.
