"It's me thinking my son was going to go out, just to have a good time," Lisa Cortez said. "Me letting him go out for a couple hours with a friend to enjoy himself and him coming back with this, never thinking that this is what I was gonna go through later on."

Valley teen survived lightning strike one year ago today

One year ago, the Valley was under a major weather alert. A powerful monsoon drenched the Valley. Strong winds also took out trees and powerlines and left parks under several inches of water. The storm also changed the lives of two El Mirage teenagers. They were walking in the park when they were struck by lightning. The bolt was powerful enough to stop one of the teen's hearts. We caught up with that teen on the year anniversary of the strike.
