When lightning strikes

I was having a somewhat frivolous conversation on facebook with English chess grandmaster Nigel Short recently and our topic turned to his first and last visit to Malaysian shores quite some time ago.
Nigel: I am trying to remember where I picked up hepatitis
Me: ahem....lightning seldom strikes twice in the same place
Nigel: one guy was struck by lightning seven times
Me: that's why i said "seldom", not "never"
Nigel: he was a ranger in Yellowstone Park. if I recall (he) committed suicide in the end. Roy Sullivan was his name. just looked it up.
All I can say is, poor guy...
