15 YEAR OLD BOY STRUCK BY LIGHTNING WHILE IN BED

A 15-year-old boy who was struck by lightning early Saturday, luckily got away with only a few marks on his back and shoulder. Corey Wilmer of Oak Grove was sleeping in a small cabin on North Long Lake, north of Brainerd, when lightning struck about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. He says the bolt lifted him off the bed, and he felt extreme burning pain. He got up, but couldn’t move his shoulder, and the bed was on fire. A friend and his stepdad who were with him, took him to the Brainerd hospital. He is expected to fully recover.
