Schoolboy struck by lightning

A Wiltshire schoolboy is in hospital after being struck by lightning.

Ambulance crew 'helped boy to breathe again'

"We had a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle on scene at 3.16pm and an ambulance crew a couple of minutes later. While we were on route, we understand the better trained first-aiders from the school were providing CPR."

T"he patient had in effect been electrocuted and gone into cardiac arrest. Our paramedics took over treatment when they arrived on scene. They got a heart beat and him breathing for himself again on scene."
