Joe Compton, 11, Struck by Lightning in Swindon, England

I imagine this is everyone's worst nightmare, and it's happened to an 11-year-old boy in Britain.

See Telegraph UK, "Weather: boy, 11, struck by lightning in front of classmates leaving school." He'd be dead if it weren't for the paramedics, who, on the scene quickly, were able to revive him. And yet he's still fighting for his life. I'll be saying prayers for him.

Also at London's Daily Mail, "Schoolboy, 11, left fighting for his life after being struck by lightning outside his school."
