iPod Saves Girl from Lightning Strike

(June 19) -- Sophie Frost was lucky to receive an ipod from her grandmother, not just for enjoying tunes on the go but for saving her life several days later when she was struck by a powerful bolt of lightning.
The 14-year-old British girl was hit by a 300,000-volt bolt while she and her boyfriend were standing underneath a tree. Although the impact knocked them both out and left them with minor burns, the electricity was diverted away from her vital organs, the Daily Mail reported.
