Teen, paralyzed by lightning strike on Florida beach, continues to recover one year later
Floridians have heard the saying, “When thunder roars, go indoors.” One Texas mom returned to Tampa Bay on Friday to educate beachgoers about those very dangers. July 16 marks one year since Jacob Brewer, then 14 years old, was struck by lightning on Siesta Key Beach.
The strike hit the teenager in the chest before exiting his right foot. Miraculously, Jacob survived, but he is now paralyzed from the waist down.
