Whilst on a visit to his holiday home in the West of Ireland with all his family in tow, a Hidden Hearing client with a K90 hearing aid had the unfortunate experience of having his hearing aid struck by lightning in his right ear. The unfortunate hearing aid blew out of his ear not to be found for some hours until he offered a reward to his grand children. Eventually one of his grand daughters found the aid and it was still in perfect working condition.
His grand kids had been out on the bay in Kayaks with their father who witnessed the same storm but did not realise what had happened back on shore.
Nobody was any worse for wear after the experience and the hearing aid wearer says he has never felt better in his life and is looking forward to his next break next week in the sunny West of Ireland.
