Whole family struck by lightening

  • A family in Germany is recovering after a grandmother and four other family members, including children, were struck by lightening. 

    The Local reports that they were all bringing toys and furniture inside the house during a storm and the daughter-in-law felt a tingle throughout her body. "There was chaos," she told the BBC. "Everybody was just acting on autopilot. A few minutes later the ambulance arrived."

    One 9-year-old child was admitted to the hospital in a serious condition but the rest suffered minor injuries.
