Chinese Train Struck by Lightning

The death toll in a high-speed train crash in eastern China on Saturday has risen to 32 people; more than 90 others were injured. The train was traveling from Hangzhou to Wenzhou when it was struck by lightning and lost power. Another train then hit the stalled train, knocking two of its cars off a bridge. Earlier this month, a storm caused a power failure on the brand-new line between Beijing and Shanghai; that train was delayed for 90 minutes without lights or air conditioning.
