A Texas man is lucky to be alive after he was hit by lightning twice.
FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony has the story:
Wagner: "This is by far, the closest to death I've ever been, ha ha."
Casey Wagner can laugh now-- but Saturday he was in bad shape when lightning did strike twice.
Wagner: "What I remember is just a loud boom and it dropped me to my knees and then right when I was going to my knees it hit me again."
And he recalls:
Wagner: "Two big ol' flashes and then sparks went everywhere."
Wagner had sought shelter from the storm under a tree in Saint Jo in North Texas. He was taken to a hospital but treated and released.
Wagner: "Feels like my whole body's waking up from, like if your arm falls asleep."
And he thanks the Lord above:
Wagner: "I owe everything to him. He's the one who kept me alive."
So Wagner says he plans to go to church more often.
