Woman Struck by Lightning — Twice — Indoors
It's rare enough to get zapped once, but to get zapped twice is super rare. This lady was not only struck twice by lightning, but she was indoors!
A woman in Houma, Louisiana was struck by a freak lightning bolt while standing in a checkout line at the supermarket Monday! The strike left behind a charred foot-wide mark near the register, but thankfully the woman – identified as 33-year-old Lakeisha Brooks - was not seriously injured. She was taken to the hospital as a precaution. When the strike occurred, it had been raining in Houma. National Weather Service Meteorologist Gavin Phillips guessed that the bolt may have been “transmitted through the store’s electric system,” though he admitted he had “never heard of anything like that.”
