Siblings of Buckeye Man Struck by Lightning Issue Warnings in New PSA

September 7, 2016
MIHS

The brother and sister of Jaime Santana, a 31-year-old Buckeye man struck by lightning in April, appear in a new MIHS Public Service Announcement warning about the dangers of lightning.

Recorded in English and Spanish, the PSAs feature Alex Santana and his sister, Sara Torres, who warns about lightning strikes: “It happens. Even though the odds are slim to none, it’s better to be safe than sorry.”

Adds her brother, Alex Santana, “You want to make sure that if you have kids, you get them inside quickly … they can wait, they can read a book, while the monsoon goes by.”

Jaime Santana was taken to MIHS’s Arizona Burn Center after suffering a direct lightning hit April 30 while on horseback near his Buckeye home. He has continued his remarkable recovery in rehabilitation centers.
