13-year-old boy struck by lightning at 13:13 on Friday the 13th


In case you haven’t yet filled your heebie jeebies quota for the day—this story should do the trick. At exactly 13:13, a thirteen-year-old boy was struck by lightning this past Friday. Yep, Friday the thirteenth. Creepy, huh? James Gillingham was enjoying the Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival in Suffolk (in the rain) when the incident occured. Gillingham suffered a minor burn and was taken to hospital, but will be good as new in no time. Two other festival go-ers—a second teenager and a woman—were also struck, but managed to come out completely unscathed.

Get your weird on.
