CINCINATTI, Ohio (CNN/WLWT) -- A pregnant Ohio woman and her husband are going to have quite a story to tell their future daughter. The odds of getting struck by lightning are about one in ten thousand. But it happened to Kelly Lough.
It looks pretty impressive, but what does lightning feel like? Lough says, "Like a jolt like a big full body jolt."
Lough is lucky enough to be able to tell us. It happened at her home in Northside. Sunday afternoon, her husband was pulling the car out of the driveway and she was holding an umbrella, waiting to get in. Lough says, "There was a huge flash and just this big boom and I like felt it jolt up my arm and out my left arm and out my toes and the umbrella flew and I just kind of freaked out a little bit and ran up stairs and back into the house."
Her husband followed. He says, "She was like throwing the umbrella white as a ghost, and I was like she just got hit by lightening."
And, so did her unborn baby girl. Lough says, "We're both perfectly healthy. Heart rate ultrasound everything's good. She's maybe al little bit more active but that's not a bad thing."
Lough says she has her shoes to thank for that. She says, "They're rubber soled shoes and usually on my way to work I would have had heels on. I was gonna throw them away yesterday and I didn't. And I put em on today, and first thing they said when I checked in was that they probably saved my life."
Kelly's husband says the bold did leave something behind, a broken umbrella. But knowing everyone's all right, he's happy to have it. He says, "This is going to be such a cool story forever."
