A woman was struck by lightning while on Ohio State’s campus today.

Around 11:30am, a man phoned 911 to report that his wife had been struck by lightning on the 200 block of Fred Taylor Dr.

He told the dispatcher that the bolt had hit her right arm and hand. Before she was taken to the hospital, the woman was alert and talking.


Dan Hedman with the OSU Director of Marketing and Communications told NBC4i that the woman is a part-time employee who was working an event outside the Hayes Center today.
