At around 11 a.m., July 5, 53 pigs were simultaneously killed when a flash of powerful lightning hit a pig pen, in the suburb of Shenzhen city, Guangdong province.
The pig farmer was still in a state of shock while telling the accident to reporters.
Shen said, when the lightning struck through the roof of the pig pen and tore it open 20-meter long, she was feeding young pigs only three meters away.
She heard pigs screaming and went to find that 53 pigs were electrocuted to death.
When the news was spread on the Internet, some netizens disbelieved the fact and thought it could be an insurance fraud. But the pig farmer replied none of pigs were insured and she had a loss of up to 130,000 RMB now because of this.
By looking at the scene where three electric switches struck broken too by the lightning, it was believed that the unauthorized electric wires hooked up over the pen’s roof had something to do with the accident.

Chinese netizens started to dress up world famous paintings and statues, after CCTV blurred the genitals of Michelangelo’s David Statue in a newscast about the exhibition at the National Museum of China.
One netizen even put a pair of red CK undershorts on the CCTV tower to shame them. Interesting!
