Man survives two lightning strikes

 

The Associated Press

 

SAINT JO, Texas -- An off-road racing enthusiast has survived being struck by lightning twice during the same storm in North Texas. 

 

Casey Wagner said Sunday that doctors told him a tingling feeling would last for about a week. 

 

KTVT-TV reports Wagner was at an off-road competition in Saint Jo, 85 miles northwest of Dallas, when storms arrived. 

 

The 31-year-old Wagner was under a tree when he was hit by lightning. He dropped to his knees then he was struck again. Wagner says he saw sparks during the strikes. 

 

A nurse who happened to be nearby cared for Wagner until he was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released. 

 

Wagner says he believes God kept him alive -- and he plans to start going to church more.
