Talk about your close calls! The odds of getting hit by lightning are one in 700,000. That’s rare enough – but the odds of surviving a lightning bolt to the head are almost unfathomable. Ryan Cross, 34, of Idaho, did just that after being struck while taking shelter from a storm under a tree over Memorial Day weekend. The lightning hit his head and exited his back, leaving his brain bleeding. A friend who was with him flagged down an SUV and Cross was rushed to a hospital and placed in intensive care. He is now alert, eating and even walking a little.
