Father And Son Struck By Lightning

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue has identified the two men struck by lightning on Tuesday.

Antonio Miranda, 39, and his father, Enrique, 71, were cutting branches with a machete when three consecutive lightning bolts struck a tall Australian pine tree.

The men, who were standing near the base of the tree, were struck with electrical current, causing them to fall.

Enrique managed to call 911 and direct rescue personnel to their location.

Both men were taken to St. Mary's Medical Center, where Antonio was pronounced dead a short time later.

At last check, Enrique was in critical condition.

The question I have: How could the father's cell phone possibly have worked after that!
