Have you ever heard of someone surviving a lightning strike? Believe it or not, this happensvery often. Lightning strikes about 2,000 people around the world every year and most of these people survive.Austin Melton from Oregon, USA survived a lightning strike when he was 14 years old. Hewas playing basketball in his school when the storm started. All the lights in the schoolwent out, so the students ran outside to watch the storm. They saw lightning above thefootball field and saw it hit the school building. Many students were frightened, but notAustin. He wanted everyone to know that he was brave, so he walked across the footballfield. Suddenly, lightning hit his head and his body. Austin’s friends ran to help him, butthey were too frightened to touch him. A teacher called an ambulance and Austin went tohospital. All the students were worried. The lightning destroyed Austin’s shirt and shoes, but he was still alive. It was amazing!Austin has discovered a lot of important information about lightning since his experience.For example, lightning is more dangerous than most people think – and it usually hits thehighest object around. If you walk into a field, you will become the highest object in thearea and the lightning will probably hit you. Also, it is dangerous to stand near high trees or  buildings. The best place to be during a storm is in a car, bus or building, but lightning canenter open windows and doors, so it’s important to close them.There are often thunderstorms in Oregon, but now when Austin sees lightning, he doesn’trun into a field! In fact, he hasn’t been outside in a storm since his accident.
