OK - after browsing, I did see a slight trend to take the opportunity to sort of promote atheism by some. What I mean is that this is not the time to use the comment section to speculate on the fact that a god should have protected this man. I think that's a bit unfair to some degree. Save those conversations for a more general conversation outside of the story itself. Maybe use it as an example, like when lightning bolts hit churches and burn them down.
Anyway, internet comment sections are mostly a lost cause.
