Pregnant Woman Survives Lightning Strike to Give Birth

  ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A pregnant New Mexico woman has survived a bolt from the blue to give birth to a bouncing baby girl.
 
     Authorities say Kendra Villanueva and the baby's father Ian Gordon were watching fireworks with friends on July Fourth when lightning struck both of them in the front yard of an Albuquerque home.
 
     KRQE-TV (http://bit.ly/12GdD6f) reports Villanueva was just weeks from her due date and was rushed to University of New Mexico Medical Center where she had an emergency Cesarean section. Mother, father and baby survived relatively unscathed.
 
     The couple named the baby Kimberly Samantha Rose Gordon and said they'll also call her "little Flash Gordon."
 
     Ian Gordon says the new parents are hoping their new daughter will "run fast, or save the universe."
