An Escambia County teenager hit by lightning while playing online poker was recovering at an area hospital. Eddie Wilkenson was electrocuted Wednesday afternoon when a lightning strike traveled through his home computer.

The 17-year-old said he felt a jolt go up his right arm and through his entire body. He said he couldn't move and that his body was weak.

A few minutes later, he called his mother for help. She called paramedics and drove across town to reach her son.

The family said the teen will need physical therapy to recover full use of his arm.

Eddie Wilkenson said he had been warned about using the computer in storms, but didn't take the warnings seriously.

Computers can be protected from lightning strikes by surge protectors.
