Colorado Girl Survives Lightning Strike Without Scratch

This is an amazing miracle. A nine-year-old Colorado girl survives a lightning strike -- without a scratch!

"I was laying down, the lightning came through the window and shocked my foot," 9-year-old Lexie Archuleta told a local CBS station.

Lexi was in her bedroom watching television on Wednesday when the lightning hit her Commerce City, Colo., home, and shocked her, reported a NBC news affiliate. Lexie was barely able to speak after the incident.

"My daughter is just freaking out saying her insides are burning," her mother, Tracy Archuleta, told CBS.

When Lexie was taken to hospital for tests, she didn't show any sign of serious injuries.

She is extremely lucky. Thirty-four people were killed and 253 injured by lightning strikes in the United States last year, according to www.struckbylightning.org.
