Southside lightning strike-not
Reports that a little boy was struck by lightning Sunday evening were found understandably untrue by Monday afternoon.
According to Police Chief Mark DiLuzio, the 6-year-old was riding his bike on Argus Court during a period of storms when lightening struck a tree nearby. He fell at the same moment, causing neighbors to think he’d been struck.
DiLuzio posits the boy fell from fear, and at the hospital it was determined the lucky fellow sustained only an abrasion on his lip.
