Sweetwater, TX

Jr. High School

Mother in law in Trent Tx just passed away. We found a newspaper article from 1977 that revisited the 9-6-57 lightning accident in Sweetwater. I am Eddie Mitchell and Robbie Lee Mitchell was my sister. I was in the 3rd grade at East Ridge at the time. The 1977 article mentioned several things I did not know. I googled Ruby Nell Walker Rogers who lives in Paradise Tx and then talked to her today. Ruby and Robbie were close friends. Ruby gave me a lot more details about that day. They worked with Ruby for over an hour before reviving her. She said she was in a long tunnel with a door at the end with no handle. God said you can't come in now. She saw a small light at the other end which got bigger and then she woke up in the hospital. It has been 55+ years and it still seems like yesterday with things that day burned into my memory.  (Mar 16, 2013 | post #7)
