New Jersey Teen Struck by Lightning: 'Why Did This Happen to Me?'
August 12, 2019
Brendan Darby was out for a jog behind a school in New Jersey when a giant bolt of lightning struck him. "Right as it happened, I thought, I should be dead right now," Darby, 19, told WCBS. "... You don't think it can happen to you but it can." Darby said he doesn't remember much. He woke up on the ground. Darby still doesn't understand why he was so unlucky. "I feel, why did this happen to me?" he said. But he's thankful to be alive.
