A baby has been nicknamed Flash, in tribute to the 1930s comic book hero, after she was struck by lightning in the womb.

An unborn baby survived being struck by lightning.

Pregnant Kendra Gordon was 38-weeks pregnant when she was knocked unconscious by a thunderbolt as she sheltered from a storm in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Doctors were shocked to find the baby remained unharmed after the terrifying ordeal despite a 50 percent chance of survival.

Kendra's baby girl, Kimberley, was born shortly after the ordeal and has been nicknamed Flash due to her permanently static hair.

The newborn also suffered some neurological damage from the strike.

Kendra said: "It's hard seeing she can't eat like she's supposed to ... But other than I'm glad she lived through it all."
