A wish come true?!
A family was struck by lightning while driving in their car in southern Utah. The whole thing was caught on camera.
Taylor, Denham and Tanner Morlock were riding with their dad through torrential rain when Taylor said, "I hope we get hit by lightning."
Well, moments later that wish was granted. The SUV's antenna was struck.
Sparks were flying, and the family was in disbelief.
"It's hot, it's scary, it's loud," says Denham Morlock.
"It's just blazing hot," says Taylor Morlock.
The family's trip was cut short. The car's antenna was burnt out and the electrical gauges shut off. Three of the car's tires were blown, and the family had to wait for a tow truck.
Another side effect of the lightning strike--several of the cell phones and gaming devices died. The electronics had to be charged again.
No one was injured thankfully.
While the boys agree the experiences was exciting, they all say they don't want to repeat it.
'I kind of feel like it's your fault when you said, "Oh, I wish we'd get struck by lightning,"' Denham said, turning to his brother Taylor.
'He should never say it again.'
