Tragic.  Why doesn't the article state something about where they were gathered?  Under a metal non grounded structure?  Sitting on damp ground?  Facts like this may help prevent this in the future.

"Why doesn't the article state something about where they were gathered?"

a typical rural house in developing country such as thailand or cambodia may not offer much protection as could be thin wood.

in a vehicle (metal) would be safe though.

yes sad & tragic accidents happen but on a low scale like this. odds are slim

That post you made about getting your money stolen makes no mention of your bad karma. Interesting double standard there.
