Woman Struck by Lightning, Cured of Heart Condition


Serbia: A lightning strike has cured 51-year-old Nada Acimovich of arrhythmia - a heart condition characterised by irregular heartbeats. Surprised doctors discovered the condition was completely gone following the shock.

Arrhythmia can be fatal and is usually treated with much less severe electric shocks. Tony Blair was treated for this condition several years back.

"In the first place she's lucky to be alive because of the lightning strike, but she's now going to live for much longer too," said one doctor.

is a good thing that the electric current not only can cause death but it can heal too.

Reminds me of the simpsons with that old guy with a cane
He gets shot in the eye with a laser "my cataracts are gone!" Then of course he gets shot again " ah easy come easy go"

It made me think of the scene in Family Guy where Joe Swanson regains the use of his legs after taking a nasty spill down a hill in his wheelchair with skis on the bottom and his son in his lap. Just as he gets up and realizes what happened, his son comes flying by and slams into him, reparalyzing him.

Apparently they dont have pacemakers there. Thats how we "cure" those pesky arrhythmias in the states.

  Thank God!  
All good things come from Him . . . even lightning. I'm not afraid to honestly attribute this to God.

" Thank God!

...and this is why religion is intellectually dangerous.

  @Lykos, verity  
Ah, yes, God ... who capriciously uses lightning to cure blindness in one person, but allows so many decent, good-hearted people to continue to be blind, or deaf, or paralyzed, etc. ...

  that big bearded fellow in the sky  
He controls the weather, in fact every lightning bolt ever. God that great unknown person thing, he willingly controls the atmospheric conditions on an extremely miniscule grain of rock floating through his vast, infinite universe creation. He loves all beings on this planet and shows it... He must also have hatred then too eh? All the natural disaster(tsunamis,earthquakes, volcanoes, etc) and what not, all out of love??. Keep praying sheep, the herdsman does not exist.

  Christmas Vacation.....  
First thing I thought of was National Lamppon's Christmas vacation:

"'She falls down a well, her eyes go cross. She gets kicked by a mule. They go back. I don't know."

Cousin Eddie is speaking of his daughter Ruby Sue's eyes no longer being crossed...
