I live in Quebec, and one of the strangest thing here is that every time that some clouds are in the sky, all public pools in the cities are evacuated. This is done for our "safety" with the argument that lightning can strike the pool and I guess kill us all. Although I have seen in the news people hit by lightning in the middle of a lac, I have never seen anyone killed by lightning in a urban pool. So, is there any case anywhere of someone being killed in a urban pool by lightning?
And I think my question is more specific then Is it unsafe to swim during a lightning storm?
