Only last week’s Miami Dolphin exhibition game was delayed by lightning in the area. Maybe it was a good idea. From AP-
Danish soccer player Jonathan Richter has had the lower part of his left leg amputated, six weeks after he was struck by lightning during a reserve game.
The FC Nordsjaelland defender’s condition is improving and he will “very soon” be moved from the intensive care unit at a Copenhagen hospital, his family said in a statement posted Tuesday on the club’s Web page.
It said he “was making great progress” but gave no further details on the 24 year old.
Richter was struck during a brief thunder storm July 20 while playing against second-tier team Hvidovre. He was placed in an induced coma for 10 days.
Richter joined FC Nordsjaelland in 2005. The club is currently eighth in the Danish league standings.
Let’s pray Richter has a speedy recovery from his surgery.
