BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A 44-year-old bicyclist struck by
lightning in north-central Colorado while training for a triathlon
is out of the hospital after temporarily losing her sight and
motion in her arms.
Terri Menghini says she had finished 78 miles of a 100-mile bike ride Monday in Boulder when a storm quickly developed. She was struck and thrown off her bike.
The mother of five says she lost consciousness. When she woke up, her vision went from blurry to black and she couldn't move her arms. She was taken to the Boulder Community Hospital and was released Tuesday.
Menghini, who is from St. Louis, Mo., but stays in Estes Park west of Boulder every summer, says all that's left from the
lightning strike is a bad road rash and a cracked helmet.
