      Texan survives being hit by lightning twice in same day

      SAINT JO, Texas (AP) An off-road racing enthusiast has survived being struck by lightning twice during the same storm in North Texas.

      Casey Wagner said Sunday that doctors told him a tingling feeling would last for about a week.

      KTVT-TV reports Wagner was at an off-road competition in Saint Jo, 85 miles northwest of Dallas, when storms arrived.

      The 31-year-old Wagner was under a tree when he was hit by lightning. He dropped to his knees then he was struck again. Wagner says he saw sparks during the strikes.

      A nurse who happened to be nearby cared for Wagner until he was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released.

      Wagner says he believes God kept him alive and he plans to start going to church more.
