Lancaster County, PA-Amos Lapp, a highly respected member of the Amish community, was forced to reconsider his disbelief in electricity today after being struck by lightning during a severe thunderstorm.
"I want to give thanks to God for his blessings and his merciful sparing of my life," Mr. Lap explained from his hospital room in nearby Lancaster General Hospital. "But to be honest, I've got a lot of thinking to do. Hold on, that's my iPhone."
Mr. Lapp's doctor, hospitalist Chris Greaves, described his recovery as an example of the wonders of modern medicine. "A hundred years ago we would have thought that Mr. Lapp had an excessive amount of one of four bodily humors. Today we know that he has a small troll living in his belly."
