    Lightning exits woman's bottom

    THE AUSTRALIAN - WORLD WIDE WEIRD
    Lightning exits woman's bottom

    09oct06

    A WOMAN has suffered severe burning to her anus after being struck by lightning which hit her in the mouth and passed right through her body.

    Natasha Timarovic, 27, was cleaning her teeth at home when lightning struck the building.

    She said: "I had just put my mouth under the tap to rinse away the toothpaste when the lightning must have struck the building.

    I don't remember much after that, but I was later told that the lightning had travelled down the water pipe and struck me on the mouth, passing through my body.

    It was incredibly painful, I felt it pass through my torso and then I don't remember much at all." Doctors at the city hospital where she was treated for burns to the mouth and rear said: "The accident is bizarre but not impossible.

    She was wearing rubber bathroom shoes at the time and so instead of earthing through her feet it appears the electricity shot out of her backside," a medic told local television news channel, 24 Sata.

    "It appears to have earthed through the damp shower curtain that she was touching as she bent over to put her mouth under the tap. If she had not been wearing the shoes she would probably have been killed by the blast."

    Thanks for the info. I always knew this could happen. It's kind of a phobia of mine (I have several).

    So now I have proof that I can show my husband that I'm not nuts. Thank you.

    But you know what the real problem was...she was already down under.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    HA! I guess so and then some I bet.

    My Mom once got zapped by lightning while she washing dishes. Bout knocked her off her feet. She was also wearing shoes, but she wasn't hit bad enough that she got burns or needed medical attention.

    Sure she was cleaning her teeth.I wonder if the guy got shocked at all.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
