HOUSTON — A man remained in critical condition a day after reportedly being struck by lightning in a parking lot in northeast Houston, according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.
Gonzalez said deputies found the man, who is believed to be 25 years old, around 7:04 p.m. Wednesday at a business located on Mesa Drive between East Mount Houston Road and Little York Road.
The man was taken to an area hospital where Gonzalez said he's in critical, but stable, condition.
The business at the location, Republic Tube, said the man is an employee. The company said they're respecting the family's privacy.
