Killed by Lightning, Then Resurrected

Teresa Neumann : Aug 6, 2012  Staff – Christian Apostolic Church News

Miracle after boy suffers direct hit as lightning, which enters through his head, exits his feet, and leaves his dead body "smoking." He didn't breathe, or have a pulse, for at least 20 minutes.

(Parkersburg, WV)—There are miracles, and then there are miracles. Some are experienced on a personal level that can't be verified. Others are so well documented, doctors can only scratch their heads and marvel.

Lightning This story falls in the latter category.

On July 11, 2012, 18-year-old Zachary Sandy was struck by lightning in a baseball field during a church sponsored youth camp and was without a pulse, or breath, for between 20 to 40 minutes.

According to a UPCI report, others around Sandy were affected by the strike, which shook the ground and knocked people to their knees. But Sandy, who took a direct hit, was seen with smoke coming out of his mouth and lifeless body. The bolt of lightning also burned his head where the lightning entered his body and blew holes in Sandy's tennis shoes where the lightning exited.

Immediately, the report noted, prayer and CPR were implemented.

Zach Quickly, prayer support spread around the country, and by the next day, Sandy's breathing tube and machine were removed and he was able to speak, drink, eat, and walk.

Said Sandy's pastor, Rev. Doug Joseph: "Thus far, each and every prayer has been answered. At first we were cautioned that he might suffer brain damage from being under CPR for so long without a pulse . . . we were warned that burns caused by lightning strikes almost always grow worse over time before they get better. His burns did the exact opposite. We're all elated and thankful for the great touch of God bestowed on this precious young man."
