Nine British tourists had to be rescued when the catamaran they were aboard caught fire in waters off Phuket.

The 5 men and 4 women were on the MJ yacht in Ao Kung bay when a fire broke out at around 5pm on Saturday.

The fire occurred after the boat was struck by lightning during a heavy downpour, WorkPoint News reported. 

The boat was completely destroyed but all nine passengers were rescued safely.

Wow, some very lucky people indeed! I wonder if the mast was fitted with some sort of lightning rod? If so it could have saved these people's lives.

Deluded individuals who believe in an imaginary friend claim that god is all knowing, therefore everything is ‘an act of god’. Brilliant out for any insurance company, if they word policies in such a way.
