Watch: Southern Colorado couple struck by lightning

Talk about lucky.  This Souther Colorado couple was at Eleven Mile State Park, and was struck by lightning!  From KKTV:

The lightning sent a shock into Zack, through their truck, and then into Bri, who had just touched the passenger door.

“I came to about 15 feet away from the truck," said Zack Petersen. "I had actually gone over top of a table that was sitting behind me.”

Zack Petersen says when he opened his eyes again he saw his wife lying on the ground feet away, screaming.

"Fight or flight instinct kicked in, and I hobbled over to her and I tried to pick her up, but I couldn't. I had no muscle control whatsoever."

He somehow managed to get over to her and help. He even drove them both to the hospital 45 minutes away.

“If I hadn’t touched the truck when I did, because the truck has the rubber on it, it would have gone right back into him and probably either blown his hands off or God knows what else," Bri Petersen said.
