Uplifting may be Hazardous

Two women were killed by lightning when the metal in one of their under-wire bras acted like a conductor, a London inquest was told Wednesday. Sunee Whitworth, 39, and her friend Anuban Bell, 24, were killed Sept. 22 in a city park. Iain West, a pathologist, said the metal had melted. "They were enveloped in a massive amount of energy," he said.
