St. Louis woman survives Colorado lightning strike

(KMOV)-- A St. Louis woman has survived a lightning strike while training for the Ironman Triathlon.

Terri Menghini was biking in Colorado Monday when lightning struck within a hundred feet of her. Then, moments later a second bolt hit her.

Menghini, the mother of five, says that at one point she couldn't see or move her arms.

She says she's disappointed she won't be able to take part in the triathlon, but says she feels so lucky, she's going to buy a lottery ticket.
