LIGHTNING BREAKS ANKLE
BURNS WAY THROUGH FLESH OF LEG, EMERGING FROM BACK OF HEEL
Tioga, N.D., Sept. 9.—One of the most remarkable escapes from death by lightning was that of Mrs. Ole Hersel, residing near this city.
Struck by a bold which scorched her shoulder and leaped from there to the calf of her leg, the lightning pierced a hole in her flesh, burning its way along the bone and into her foot, emerging in the back of the heel.
During its course the lightning shattered every bone in her ankle. She will recover.
