NOBLE, Okla. (AP) _ A Noble man is recovering at his home after being struck by lightning for the fourth time.

University of Oklahoma physical plant worker Carl Mize spent four days at Norman Regional Hospital after lightning struck him in the recent August 5th storms.

This is his fourth time being struck by lightning since 1978.

Mize says the latest strike complicated a heart condition. He says the lightning also caused his toes to go numb.

Norman Regional Hospital spokeswoman Lisa Wood says the hospital hasn't seen a lightning victim in a number of years.
