‘Beating the Odds:’ Teens making quick recovery from lightning strike

Snow Canyon High School students, Christopher “Dane” Zdunich and Alex Lambson, are recovering quicker than family members expected, according to a blog the family set up to keep friends updated on the boys’ condition.
 
Struck by lightning on Tuesday, the boys were fully awake and laughing by early Friday morning.
 
“Once awake enough, he (Dane) was attempting to write messages, mouth words … basically wanting to know when they would take the tube out of his mouth,” the blog said. “The tube was removed and he was completely coherent, laughing and joking.”
 
According to blog posts, Dane is hoping to return to school quickly and is “doing fabulous … other than a few small burns on his feet and a very cool streak of missing hair.”
 
Another blog post, written by Alex’s mom, said she was grateful for the first responders who saved the boys’ lives.
 
“When I get back to STG, I want to personally thank each of you that preformed CPR,” she said. “Thank you STG City Rescue Team, IHC and UMV. These employees have gone far beyond their ‘job’ responsibilities to help our boys. Thanks to ALL the students for the outpouring of love and support. So many thanks to give!!!!! Students and the Community – Your prayers are being answered.”
 
Both boys have been removed from life support and are able to talk and answer questions. Monetary donations are being accepted at Snow Canyon High School and Coldwell Banker. Make checks payable to Snow Canyon High School.
 
A fundraiser will also be held at tonight’s football game as the Warriors host the Dixie Flyers at 7 p.m.
