A Tuesday afternoon thunderstorm was welcomed by most, but it came with consequences.
Around 4:15 p.m., a 16-year-old boy was struck by lightning at Traditions Golf Course in southwest Bryan.
Emergency officials from Bryan say the teen was about to take a golf lesson, when lightning hit his graphite club. When EMS arrived, he was unconscious.
The young man was taken St. Joseph Regional Health Cetner in Bryan, where firefighters say at last report he was in stable condition.
