Texas woman survives lightning strike

FRISCO, Texas. -- A teacher's aide in Texas survived a lightning strike.

An umbrella shielded her from the rain, but the woman believes her faith and rubber boots saved her life.

Debra Anderhub was working at Rogers Elementary in Texas when she was struck.

“It was horrible, it was like you're on fire, it wasn't electrical feeling it was more like fire,” said Anderhub.

Her hand was burned where she held the metal part of the umbrella.
