The 18-year-old Juliet Moore was on a camping trip in Colorado with her boyfriend Isaiah Cormier. She was just packing things into her tent during a storm to prevent them from soaking when she saw a bright flash.
She repeatedly called her boyfriend’s name, but got no answer. When she looked in the other tent, he was laying face down, motionless – as it turned out, he was struck by lightning.
Isaiah’s heart and breathing stopped. Juliet immediately started resuscitation that she learned during a course a few weeks earlier. Her boyfriend’s breathing kept returning for a few moments and then stopped again, but the girl continued to try breathing him until the rescuers arrived.
