16-year-old Dylan Corliss and 17-year-old Lexie Varga are VERY lucky to be alive today!
Last week, the couple was walking to a burger place in southern California when Dylan was struck in the head by lightning.
Authorities say that the lightning hit the boy’s head, traveled through his arm, into Lexie’s body, and exited through her foot. Miraculously, though, they were unhurt, beyond a mark on Lexie’s foot and a few muscle aches!
Medical professionals are speculating that the fact that the couple was holding hands when Dylan was struck by lightning actually diffused the strike and saved one, or both, of their lives.
