CANONSBURG, Pa. (Associated Press) -- An 11-year-old western
Pennsylvania girl is recovering after she was struck by a bolt from the blue.
Lisa Wehrle tells the Observer-Reporter newspaper of
Washington, Pa., that the sun was shining when her daughter, Britney, was
struck by lightning Friday, apparently from a storm several miles away.
Lisa Wehrle says, "There was no rain. It was a
beautiful day. All she heard was some thunder."
The lightning hit Britney as she was walking down a hill in
North Strabane Township with a friend about 2:30 p.m. that day. The bolt hit
her on the left shoulder, leaving a burn-like mark and exited her wrist, where
it left another mark.
She was treated at a Pittsburgh hospital. Doctors discovered
her arm was broken, but otherwise she's OK.
