Unlucky 13

A 13-year-old British boy was struck by lightning at 13:13 on Friday 13.

The teenager was at the Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival in Suffolk last Friday (13.08.10) and suffered a minor burn before being taken to the nearby James Paget Hospital.

He is expected to make a full recovery.
Jason Gillingham, county ambulance officer and on scene at the show, said: "This was a very minor burn to the boy’s shoulder, but he was conveyed to hospital and is recovering well."

Another teenager and a woman were also struck but didn’t need treatment.
