I got a sketchy report from somebody I know that on Wednesday morning, about 6:30 or so, a mailman somewhere on the South Side (70-somethingth street) was struck by lightening.

This apparently made the news, and, moreover, the news supposvely went on to say that he was rescued by two Sox fans. I'm told they showed a picture of the two people that saved the mailman, and both were wearing Sox gear in the photos. The newscaster supposevly specifically commented on that.

Now, this is a second-hand account from somebody who's first language is not English, so I'm a bit suspicious. Has anyone else heard about this, or seen the newscast in question? Is this person making stuff up, misinterpreting things badly, or did this actually happen as described?

meanwhile, they'd go on about Chicago's TRUE savior, Jesus Prior.
