Orlando Woman’s Miraculous Survival: Struck by Lightning and Thriving

ORLANDO, Fla. — It’s truly a remarkable occurrence that an Orlando woman has survived against all odds.

Just this past Tuesday, Rebecca Soto, a 28-year-old, was struck by lightning while she was out with her dog.

Lauro and Rebecca Soto, accompanied by their loyal companion, Drake, lead a delightful life in the Lake Nona vicinity.

On that Tuesday, Rebecca dedicated the initial part of her evening to preparing for an upcoming concert she had been looking forward to.

“My wife was engrossed in painting her nails and trying on different outfits for an upcoming Beyoncé concert she was planning to attend with friends the following day,” Lauro recounted.

However, the events that unfolded later that evening nearly resulted in her losing her life.

According to her husband, Rebecca and their dog went outside for a quick moment while the dog attended to its needs.

Lauro recalls that out of nowhere, a sudden burst of thunder resonated.

“I have never experienced such an intense boom in my entire life,” Lauro described.

He rushed outside and discovered his wife lying face down on the ground, “completely unresponsive.”

“As soon as I turned her over, my initial thought was that she might not have survived,” Lauro expressed. “A few passersby who were either riding bicycles or strolling by witnessed the distressing scene, stopped, and lent a hand.”

Rebecca was transported to the Orlando Regional Medical Center, where she received the necessary medical care that ultimately saved her life.

Lauro shared that the progress his wife has made since then has been nothing short of “astonishing.”

“I never imagined I would be able to share smiles and laughter with my wife again,” Lauro said.

Rebecca can now walk and talk, yet Lauro acknowledges that it will take time before they comprehend the full extent of her injuries.

In the interim, they are together and are appreciating every moment without taking anything for granted.

“I will treasure every second I have the privilege of spending with her,” Lauro emphasized.

In the coming days, Rebecca will require therapy and rehabilitation.

For those interested in offering assistance, a GoFundMe page has been set up for this purpose.
