Storm and lightning

We got a terrible fright the other day when our son was in contact with lightning, tho luckily not a direct hit. A violent storm was happening and they were sitting in their lounge room and he said it was like a strike of lightning was in the room with them, a strange crackling wizzing sound and a ball of white light, he instantly went stiff in the legs and his body started tingling and chest pains. A ambulance was rang and he was admitted to hospital for tests and observation and released late that night. Daughter in law and grandson were fine and no affects on them.
Sometimes even when you do the right things, like staying indoors, stuff happens but so grateful, even tho it shook him up, we got our boy still. [In his 30's but still my boy]

I was reading about people and lightning and apparently 1/3 of people hit or affected are inside. Just goes to show don't shower or do the dishes when storms are around. In this case our son was sitting on the lounge which was probably a good thing.
Steve, you said about windows and our old timer neighbour was saying he was raised not be near mirrors in storms also.

My Gran used to cover all the mirrors during a storm.
