INTERESTING FACT: In 1980, a 62-year-old man with impaired vision and hearing got struck by lightning. When he woke up the next day, he could see and hear fine – E. Robinson regained his eyesight and hearing after being struck by lightning on the 4th June, 1980 while seeking shelter underneath a poplar tree during a storm. He had lost his sight in a serious accident 9 years prior “It sounded like someone snapped a whip. The next thing I knew, I came to, face down in the water at the foot of the tree,” he told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. According to his wife, he had been unconscious for 20 minutes. Feeling weak and shaken, he decided to have a nap in his bedroom. Upon awakening, he found that his eyesight and hearing, which was usually aided by a hearing aid, had significantly improved. When I got up that evening, I was sitting in the chair in the front room. I could see the plaque on the wall, and I could see the clock. But the clock kept fading in and out.” When his wife entered the bedroom, he told her: “I can see you! I can see you! I can see the house! I can read!” Robinson, amazed at this, then visited his doctor who subsequently confirmed that he had indeed had his vision and hearing restored, calling it “one for the books,” and claimed that Robinson’s rubber-soled shoes had saved his life. Another strange by-product of the lightning strike that Robinson reported later on was that his head started to grow hair once more, after being bald for many years. – See more at:
