Man struck by lightning twice

Saint Jo, Texas - While the old saying goes, Lightning never strikes in the same place twice, one Texas man said he was hit by two bolts in the same day.

Casey Wagner was standing outside at an off-road racing expo when a storm rolled in. He ran for the nearest shelter, a tree. Even though he had been told not to do that as a kid, he said he never thought lightning would hit him.

What I remember is just a loud boom, Wagner said, and it dropped me to my knees. And then, right as I was going to my knees, it hit me again.

Wagner only sustained minor injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.

The odds of being stuck by lightning are about one in 750,000.
