Two Koreans with cellphones struck by lightning

Ryan Block, @ryan

Remember that big laugh we all had when China decided cellphones were too dangerous to carry because one "attracted lightning" to the tallest thing—a dude—on the Great Wall? Yeah, that was pretty good. Well, it appears Korea suffered two vaguely-similar incidents when a couple of people with cellphones were struck by lightning and killed. Before any more urban legends get started, at least one of them had their cellphone in their pocket at the time they were struck, so it's not like anyone is really sure that it was the cellphone that got them killed.
