FORT MYERS, Fla. — A Florida mother of two and her newborn baby are recovering after she was struck by lightning last week.

Meghan Davidson, 26, and her mother were walking on June 29 when a Davidson, who was pregnant, was hit in the head by lightning, WBBH reports.

Davidson was just seven days away from her due date. She was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Doctors rushed to deliver her son, named Owen, in hopes of avoiding further complications. Hospital officials would not release the baby's condition. Family friends said he is being monitored closely.

Davidson remained in intensive care as of Monday, but a member of her church said there are hopeful signs.

"Meghan is showing signs of improvement. They have lowered the amount of oxygen that she is getting and they have lowered the sedation," Carol Bridges told the station.
