Father, Daughter hit by lightning in Tampa “We are alive and happy.” Un-believable. Both hit by lightning after canceled spring game, went to hospital, and made their flight home next day. Your may have read here on this blog over the weekend about John Moberg, and his nineteen-year-old daughter, Ashley.
Her (their) story is incredible. Dad was knocked unconscious. Ashley said “There was a big, bright flash and a loud boom and next thing I know, my ears are ringing,” She adds, “I see my dad flying in the air, smacking his head on the ground and I am flying through the air. I actually got blasted out of my shoes and I landed on the pavement. For about 10 seconds, I thought my dad was dead and I thought I was dying.” Can you imagine? Wow.
All started with The Yankees game. What a day! Ashley says after the ordeal, “We are alive. We are happy. Thank you to all of Tampa. The paramedics, the police, the Yankee administration and the hospital was incredible. Everybody was just phenomenal – five stars all the way.”
