Girl survives lightning strike because of her iPod

This teenage girl survived a terrifying lightning strike after she was saved by the wire of her Apple iPod while listening to music.

Sophie Frost and her boyfriend Mason Billington, both 14, stopped to shelter under a tree when a storm struck as they were walking around their neighborhood.

Doctors believe Sophie survived the 300,000-volt surge only because it traveled through the gadget’s wire, diverting it away from her vital organs. Check the photo of the clothes she was actually wearing during the incident.
