Two teenaged men were charred to death in a lightning strike while playing online mobile games on a mountain in Camarines Norte in the Philippines.
According to police reports, the men, both 18, were cousins and had ventured out of their house in Sta. Elena town in a bid to get a stronger mobile phone coverage.
Identified as Jimboy Magsino Lora and Jericho Compra Lora, the men sat near a tree on the mountain when they were struck by lightning, added CNN reports.

The bodies of the men were found completely burned while their destroyed mobile phones were also found near them. While a fortnight ago, a 45-year-old North Carolina motorcyclist was riding on a Florida highway when a bolt of lightening struck him.
The Florida Highway Patrol had posted earlier a terrifying photo of the man's cracked and burned helmet after he subsequently crashed and died.
