Brisbane Lions AFLW player Jessica Wuetschner is recovering well after a workplace incident that took place in the early hours of Sunday morning. 

Wuetschner was working on a ship in a crib, which was held up by a crane, when lightning struck a pole she was holding in the crib.

She was transported to hospital and discharged later Sunday morning.

The 27-year-old sustained no physical injuries and is resting at her home, supported by her mother, Club staff and teammates.

Wuetschner attended training on Tuesday night and is looking forward to life returning to normal. 

“Physically I am A-OK, but I’m still processing things mentally,” she said. 

“I am feeling a bit flat physically so will be resting my body.

“I was very lucky and I’m feeling very fortunate. 

“The doctors have given me the all clear to return to training, so I’m looking forward to getting back to footy, getting back to normal. 

“Thank you to everyone for their care and concern.”

Lions AFLW CEO Breeanna Brock said the team are supporting Wuetschner in every way possible. 

“We are just so thankful that she is alright,” Brock said.

“A moment like this put things into perspective, that’s for sure. 

“We’ll continue to work with Jess and our team here at the Club to make sure she has everything she needs to get back to normal.” 

The Club would like to thank everyone for their concern and ask for Wuetschner’s privacy to be respected as she recovers.
