Theirs is a truly electrifying love story.
Dr. Stefan Reynoso says that it was a good thing that teenagers Dylan and Lexie were holding hands. This likely diffused the electrical current that coursed through their bodies when the couple was struck by lightning on Thursday.
The couple was walking in Claremont, California when they were hit. Although they were momentarily stunned, Dr. Reynoso says that Dylan and Lexie are fine. CBS Los Angeles reports:
“These two were lucky they that they were holding hands. It helped to diffuse the electrical current that ran through their bodies,” Reynoso said.
Reynoso suspects the bolt first hit Dylan’s head and traveled through his hands to hers and exited through Lexie’s foot. […]
Both now joke they have an “electric love.”
