News smidgen: Two teenagers have just added another chapter to their love story, one that includes possibly being struck by lightning in Claremont.
Dylan and Lexie were walking along a tree-lined street in Claremont, California when it appears they were hit by lightning.
“Next thing you know, we are on the ground and we gave each other the most terrified looks you could possibly imagine,” Lexie said. “It was definitely weird. I kind of thought there was an earthquake.”
A witness told them he saw a lightning bolt hit them. The doctor who treated the pair said that holding hands diffused the electrical current through them or it might have been fatal.
