Big Brother Winner Helen Wood Struck By Lightning
Reality TV star reckons her wellies saved her life...
Former Big Brother winner Helen Wood has revealed that she was struck by lightning while out for a walk.
And the 28-year-old told The Sun On Sunday how she felt the shock pulse through her body.
"I just completely froze when the lightning hit me," she said. "I was on the phone to a friend at the time.
"I felt the electricity shock go through my skull down past my right eye then out my jaw. It was so powerful. I screamed then ran to the car and was so upset.
"I had a bad headache and felt really dizzy but I don't know whether that was just the shock. I was in the middle of nowhere and was terrified."
Wood puts her survival down to the fact that she was wearing rubber wellies at the time.
She later tweeted: "Thanks to my HunterBoots I'm alive today — got struck by lightning. The doctor said 'you would never have survived without them.' Amen."
