Casey Wagner Had Himself a Weekend

(Source) “An off-road racing enthusiast has survived being struck by lightning twice during the same storm in North Texas.

Casey Wagner said Sunday that doctors told him a tingling feeling would last for about a week.

KTVT-TV reports Wagner was at an off-road competition in Saint Jo, 85 miles northwest of Dallas, when storms arrived.

The 31-year-old Wagner was under a tree when he was hit by lightning. He dropped to his knees then he was struck again. Wagner says he saw sparks during the strikes.

A nurse who happened to be nearby cared for Wagner until he was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released.

Wagner says he believes God kept him alive — and he plans to start going to church more.”


I wrestled in bar and went 6-6 in softball and I thought I had a great weekend. Then I read about Casey Wagner and my accomplishments don’t seem so great. Getting struck multiple times by lightning and stealing the spotlight. I’ll give credit where credit is due: Casey Wagner had one hell of a weekend.

P.S. I’m not saying God didn’t help this guy out, but next time you’re outside during a lightning storm, don’t stand under a free
