A faithful dog dragged his owner, the Mayor of Redruth, all the way home after he was hit by lightning.
64-year-old Ian Thomas was taking his dog out for an early morning walk when he was struck, the only thing that saved his life was the fact that he was wearing wellington boots. Temporarily knocked out by the strike, Thomas was able to grab on to his dog, Monty, who helped drag him back to his house.
