AFLW – Jess Wuetschner survives lightning strike

You can never allow for all possibilities. Brisbane Lion star forward Jess Wuetschner was literally struck by lightning on the weekend. Jess was at her job in the Port of Brisbane when the incident occurred.


Fortunately, Jess has avoided injury and is a chance to line up for the Lions in Round 1 of the new season.


The full details released by the club can be found here.


We wish Jess all the best for the coming season.
