Ivan Zaborsky Struck By Lightning On Pitch by obembet(f): 2:32pm On Jul 07
A 16-year-old Russian footballer has been put into a coma and left with a scar around his neck after he was struck by lightning during training

Ivan Zaborsky is fighting for his life after the terrifying incident in Orekhovo-Zuevo, near Moscow.

The teenage goalkeeper, who was training separately from his teammates, was wearing a metal chain around his neck which was struck by the lightning.

It is claimed the sky was clear when the lightning struck at the FC Znamya Truda weekend practice session.

Amazingly, the video appears to show him kick the ball from the edge of the penalty area even after he is struck.

He collapses to the ground and his coaches and teammates rush towards him.

His trainer Anton Basov performed a heart massage and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

The unconscious goalie was rushed to a local hospital and then transferred by helicopter to a clinic in Moscow.

His girlfriend Yelena told Podyem media: 'He is in stable condition.
'He regained consciousness but due to a strong painful shock he had to be put back into a coma.'

'His parents are at his bedside. He has a scar around his neck where the lightning hit his chain, and that his lung was damaged. He needs time to stabilise.'

Zaborsky's sister Karina Zaborovskaya said: 'He woke several times, but doctors were scared to take a risk, and he was put back to coma.'

She said: 'Doctors say that he was born under a lucky star. I still can't comprehend it all. I cannot understand how it could happen.
'There were no clouds above the stadium before and during the training session, nothing signalled trouble.'

She praised the coaching staff who 'saved his life' with their prompt action.

'There were no clouds above the stadium before and during the training session, nothing signalled trouble.'

The above statement is laughable at best...

I am sure whoever made it hasn't heard of the term "bolt from the blue".

Lightning can strike even when the skies above are clear and those sort of lightning strikes are far deadlier than the ones that often occur during rainfalls or thunderstorms.

If they should care enough to investigate properly, I am pretty sure that they might end up finding out that there was a thunderstorm several miles away despite the clouds being clear above that particular training ground at that point in time.

WOW! EARTH-1 FINALLY HAS A FLASH!

Just like in the movie,
Struck by lightening and was in coma for long.

I don't know if someone activated a particle accelerator nearby, or it is just natural, but one thing seems sure, the guy is now THE FLASH!

When his power finally manifests, he might decide to use it secretly, to protect his identity.
cheesy
