The family was gathering their garden furniture and toys in during a storm at their home near Chemnitz, Saxony, when they were struck at around 5pm.
The boy’s grandmother, her daughter, her daughter-in-law and two grandsons, aged six and nine, were all hit and taken to hospital.
The daughter-in-law told Bild newspaper that she was hit by a tingle “from head to toe”.
All suffered minor injuries apart from the nine-year-old boy who had to be resuscitated in the garden.
