Wow, maybe you really are listening to the Devil's music. Listen to an iPod during a storm and you may get more than electrifying tunes. A Canadian jogger suffered wishbone-shaped chest and neck burns, ruptured eardrums and a broken jaw while listening to his iPod while mowing the lawn.
Last summer, a Colorado teen ended up with similar injuries when lightning struck nearby as he was listening to his iPod while mosing the lawn.
Emergency physicians report treating other patients with burns from freak accidents while using personal electronic devices such as beepers, Walkman players and laptop computers outdoors during storms. Well, eff you, Ben Franklin. (Anyone who's ever seen the Final Destination movies will get the reference).
