DENVER — Hikers on two different mountains this weekend experienced electrical shocks and currents so strong it left their hair standing straight up.
Lori Corliss is an experienced hiker.
She and a group of over 30 hikers were on the summit of Mt. Princeton at about 10:30 a.m. when they started feeling shocks on their skin.
She says they all started running for their lives off the summit.
“We all started feeling our hair standing up, skin was tingling. Everything was zapping us, the backpacks, the poles. We said ‘everybody run!“ Corliss said.
