14-year-old Boy Struck in Oregon

While it is thundering and lightning in Northern New Jersey, I was informed of an interesting story that occurred in Oregon two days ago.

Austin Melton, a 14-year-old, was struck by lightning while attempting to get a closer look of a thunderstorm that knocked out the lights at a basketball game he was attending at La Pine High School.

Within mintues, the 8th grader was struck and unconscious.
