Being in the open ain't any better as this poor guy found out.
Check out this analysis of the video:
If i remember correctly, i remember a post here of someone who had been struck by lightning 5 times in a row. I hope i am making this up, but it struck to me.
Do any of you remember that post ?
That’s why I always stand on the OTHER side of the trunk from where the bolt is to stay safe (in this picture - I would have been on the right side of the tree - enjoying the view of this wonder of nature)!! I can’t believe the number of people who don’t know this! Feel free to reach out if y’all need any other safety advice!!!
The scary thing is that I have heard "Don't be the tallest object in the area when lightning is striking" and "Don't stand by a tree when lightning is striking." Are these statements mutually contradicting?
Yes it does.That doesn't "look" like lightning, or does it?
