ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Albuquerque man and his pregnant girlfriend survived getting struck by lightning this past Fourth of July.
Mother, father and baby are all OK and on Monday, they were on the TV show "The Doctors" to share their story.
”I woke up and body stiffed feels like you're having a seizure ... body on fire ... skin burning. It's not a fun experience,” Kendra Villanueva said.
Ian Gordon and Kendra Villanueva were watching fireworks with friends when the storm rolled in.
Doctors believe the current from the lightning went through Ian’s ear, through his body, then into Kendra’s, before going out her thumb.
Kendra was two weeks away from her due date so doctors performed an emergency C-section.
Baby Kimberly Samantha Rose is still in the hospital, but should be OK.
Ian and Kendra still suffer from muscle spasms and headaches, but are thankful to be alive.
Before this incident, there had only been 11 lightning strikes on pregnant women in the past 50 years. Babies survived in only half those cases.
