At 0813 Hrs East Pierce Firefighters were dispatched to a lightning injury. Units told it was a male in his 20's who was using weed-eater in a field. Dont believe he was struck, just nearby. He was evaluated and transported to Good Sam in good condition. Its a good reminder, that when you see lightning or hear thunder to move indoors. Stay safe!
