DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama teenager who was struck by lightning at his home has died.

The Dothan Eagle reports Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd says 16-year-old Aron Eugene Dunn had stepped out on the porch of his home Wednesday when lightning struck. Byrd says the lightning ran through a tree, and then jumped to the teen, going through his body and exiting his foot to the ground.

Byrd says emergency responders worked on the teenager at the scene for 15 to 20 minutes before taking him to Southeast Alabama Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
