Henderson County CR 3302 lightning strike hits window of home

HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A man who was struck by lightning near Brownsboro is expected to be okay, Henderson County Sheriff’s Office said.

Sheriff Botie Hillhouse confirmed Wednesday afternoon the man was struck by lightning while working inside a house off of Redbud Road.

The home is under construction, and according to a project manager, the man who was shocked is an electrician who was working at the time. The lightning bolt apparently struck a window and traveled through the electric wiring when it reached the electrician.

Hillhouse said the man was rushed to a Tyler hospital, but he is expected to survive.

Other details are limited at this time. KLTV will continue to update this story with any new information we receive.
