Interesting data.

As expected, more men tend to be killed by lightning than women for reasons cited in the article.

At the same time, let us get a perspective on the risk level for such a death. There were 352 deaths over a span of 10 years, averaging 35.2 deaths each year.

Let us look at it in a relative sense:

35.2 deaths per year
~2.6 million deaths/year (CDC-2014)
~626000 from Heart diseases
~595000 from Cancer
