Savannah Vowers, a 14-year-old girl from Littleton, Colorado who was struck recently while washing her mother’s truck, described getting struck by lightning as feeling like her “bones were crunching.”
Thirteen-year-old Connor Laughlin who was struck while holding an umbrella during a thunderstorm said being struck felt like ” a massive shock and it felt really sore as it was going through me. My legs buckled under me. It pushed me right over, the umbrella fell out of my hand and I hit the ground. It was like being hit by a truck and so loud.”
