Son Saves Mom's Life After She Was Struck by Lightning

Son Saves Mom's Life After She Was Struck by Lightning

Teach your children what to do in an emergency, because you never know when lightning may strike. Nine-year-old Tristan Coxwell called 911 when his mother, Kimberly Krone, was struck by lightning in the family's Texas kitchen. The calm child kept his cool and an eye on his siblings while he gave the operator information. Help arrived and after a brief hospital stay, the 29-year-old mama of six is said to be doing fine. How have you prepared your child for these types of situations?
