Idaho Man Says He Was Struck By Lightning

KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) - A 26-year-old man says he was struck by lightning last week during an intense central Idaho mountain storm - but emerged from the incident unscathed.

John Cacey was riding his bicycle in this resort town near Sun Valley when a storm descended on the valley.

He says he was pulling on his rain jacket when he heard a sound of a belt being cracked.

Cacey says it felt like somebody had punched him on the hip.

He immediately fell to the ground, then began yelling to passing cars for help.

Cacey told the Idaho Mountain Express that he was "more shocked than anything - pardon the pun."

He was checked out by emergency workers who determined that he didn't suffer any injuries.
