Pregnant woman, newborn fight for lives after lightning strike

A Florida woman who gave birth just hours after being struck by lightning is in "fair" condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman who was unable to provide information on the infant's health.

Davidson was walking with her mother when she was struck by lightning outside her Whispering Palms home.

Davidson was immediately taken to the hospital where doctors delivered her baby boy.

Davidson was in critical condition on Friday. "I think it's devastating, you know, you just don't understand why some tragedy happens", added church member Linda Kelly.

Sunday the family's church held a prayer vigil. "They have lowered the amount of oxygen that she is getting and they have lowered the sedation", said Carol Bridges, a member of the church that Davidson and her family attend.

Meghan is also reportedly able to respond with her eyes when her husband Matt calls her name.

Three people in the US have died from lightning strikes this year, according to the News-Press.

According to CBS 46, Davidson was out walking with her mother at the time of the lightning strike.
