UPDATE: Woman Struck by Lightning in Clark County
NEW CARLISLE -- Scientists have determined the odds of getting struck by lightning in your lifetime is 1 in 3,000. One local woman became that 1 on Tuesday.
New Carlisle's Michelle Lee says she was taking a nap in her backyard when lightning struck. And she tell us she's lucky to be alive.
Michelle says the lightning's path began at a nearby tree, went through the ground, tore through her shoe, struck her baby toe and went back out through her calf.
"Fire. It felt like somebody had took a branding iron and touched me with it. I could barely move my big toe, it was all black and nasty looking," Michelle explained Wednesday.
Michelle says by the use of sheer adrenaline she was able to stand herself up and hobble into the kitchen.
Eric Lee rushed to his wife's side.
"With her at the angle she was and the way it came out over there, it could've been more dangerous, and that's what really scared me," Eric said.
"When I got in the ambulance my heart rate was like 190 over 80 and she said I'm surprised you didn't have a heart attack," Michelle recalled.
Believe it or not, 400 people survive lightning strikes each year. Michelle Lee proudly joins that list.
"You just never think it could happen to you. Never," she said.
Michelle is on pain medications and doctors say she could lose her baby toe, but Michelle tells us she's feeling pretty good and will return to work Thursday. She also said she might try her hand at the lottery.
CLARK COUNTY -- A woman has been struck by lightning.
"I was working at my desk, heard a great big crack, then I heard somebody screaming," recalls Jerry Lee Jr.
The woman screaming was Lee's sister-in-law. She was struck in the leg and foot on Strathmore Road in Park Layne.
Lee says he ran downstairs to call 911.
"She actually crawled into the house or hobbled or whatever, I don't know how she got in that fast, but she got in," Lee said.
The 38-year-old woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital but is expected to be OK.
