She Was the Only One to Survive a Lightning Strike. She Wonders Why.

From a Washington Post story by Emily Davies headlined “She was the only one to survive a lightning strike. She wonders why.”:

When Amber Escudero-Kontostathis regained consciousness days after she was struck by lightning, she had a bad feeling that there were other victims.

So the 28-year-old grabbed the iPad beside her hospital bed and typed “Lightning Strike D.C.” into a Google search. She saw headlines that three people had died, and one person had survived during a storm near the White House. But it wasn’t until she saw two familiar faces in pictures that she grew distressed.
