Caught On Camera! Local Man Nearly Killed By Lightning [VIDEO]
This guy did everything your not supposed to do during a lightning storm.
The guy who filmed this was doing exactly what the National Weather Service tells you not to. When you hear thunder, they want you to head inside. Tom Leaf from Shiawassee County is very lucky. Tom took a few precautions before he hit the record button but still did the wrong thing.
Back in April Tom heard a thunder storm rolling in so being the picture taker of nature that he is headed outside to get some lightning shots. Tom thought by staying inside his car he would be ok. Wrong..In his video, you can see a bolt of lightning flash about six feet from Leaf. The bolt lights up the frame, the camera tilts and everything goes to black. He survived, and so did his camera. See for yourself in the video.
