Lightning Hits Boy, 13, at 13:13 on Friday 13th

It could be argued that he's lucky to be alive.

The Daily Telegraph reports that at precisely 1:13 p.m. (or 13:13), an ambulance in the county of Suffolk in east England attended to a 13-year-old boy that was struck by lightning on Friday 13th.

The unidentified teen was taken to hospital where country ambulance officer Jason Gillingham told the paper, "This was a very minor burn to the boy's shoulder, but he was conveyed to hospital and is recovering well."

The boy was attending an air show put on by the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team in the town of Lowestoft when a thunderstorm suddenly rolled in. Another teen and a woman were also hit by lightning but they did not require hospital treatment.

The next Friday 13th is May 2011.
