A weird story happened to a Bulgarian woman, Martha Maiko. In 1935, an American tourist, Randolph Eastman, during a thunderstorm asked to stay in her house until the storm ended. A week later they were married, but months later the man was killed by lightning.
Later Maiko remarried, this time to a Frenchman named Charles Mort. During their trip to Spain her second husband also was struck by lightning. The widow returned to Sofia and started therapy to recover from depression.
Time passed and she married the doctor from whom she was receiving the treatment. They were married in Berlin, but during a trip to France a lightning bolt hit the car they were driving. The third husband was killed on the spot.
As far as we are able to ascertain she was not married for a fourth time.
