SAINT JO, Texas (AP) — An off-road racing enthusiast survived being struck by lightning twice during the same storm in North Texas.

Casey Wagner said Sunday that doctors told him a tingling feeling would last for about a week.

KTVT-TV reported that Wagner, 31, was at an off-road competition in Saint Jo, 85 miles northwest of Dallas, when storms arrived.

Wagner was under a tree when he was hit by lightning. He dropped to his knees then he was struck again. Wagner says he saw sparks during the strikes.

A nurse who happened to be nearby cared for Wagner until he was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released.
