An employee of Petersburg, Kentucky’s Creation Museum was struck by lightning Wednesday while clearing guests from a zip line attraction at the museum during a thunderstorm. According to Kentucky’s WLWT.com, the man was helping guests down from the wires as thunderstorms rolled into the area.He was taken to a hospital where doctors trained in modern scientific processes determined his wounds to be 'superficial' and treatable, so yeah, he lived.
Museum officials reported that the worker touched a piece of equipment that had been charged by a lighting strike and the current slammed into his body, injuring him.
The zip lines were installed in the spring to help the Christian-themed museum attract a wider group of visitors. The 1,700 feet of cable are suspended 150 feet above the ground at their highest point.
