Eeekkk, watch yourself out there.
Excerpt from the RV Travel Newsletter.
"Complaining that his legs felt like spaghetti, Utah resident Gregg Richey had a right to complain. The father of two was putting out his RV's awning near Cedar City, Utah, when lightning hit him, stopping his heart. Richey's father quickly responded, giving chest compressions. When the man regained consciousness, his family transported him to a hospital when cell phones couldn't summon aid. Richey was released after observation."
Now That is a real good reason for having a remote awning actuator, or at least some insulating gloves to wear when setting up your RV in inclement weather.. I'm surprised the chest compressions worked and he didn't need an AED, but whew, that must have been an electrifying experience.
