Hello hello ATS .

Its not everyday that we get to see videos like this , so why not post them when we find them eh?


Video: guy pulled over to film a storm & ends up getting struck by lighting on his arm . The lightning traveled down his body and struck the ground it was all captured on video!

Have a look ! 58 sec video.





:ETA The guy is OK ! , apparently he walked away with a sore arm .

Lucky man!

Wow. Interesting how high it blasted debris into the air. Looks like the main impact point was a short distance away though. Did it actually strike him or did he just (I say "just") get a jolt from the induced current with such a strong potential gradient close by?

I don't think it was a direct strike but then again being that close he was probably even luckier I heard they're usually thy fatal strikes rather than a direct hit and a serious nerve damage

Great video tho S&F

Just a thought...how is it that we hear the crack of thunder then see the strike....shouldn't it be the other way around.?

For a change it's not sarcastic. I thought light traveled faster than sound so what you said makes sense.

Storm chaser Scott Sheppard had a close call Tuesday, and it did not involve getting too close to a tornado.

Severe Studios storm chaser Scott Sheppard was filming video from inside his vehicle near Fairburn, South Dakota, when lightning struck Sheppard's arm, passed through his vehicle and hit the road.

Sheppard captured the entire event as it happened in the video above.

According to the YouTube post from Severe Studios, Sheppard has a sore arm, but is otherwise okay.

Both Sheppard's vehicle and another passing car were disabled by the strike and had to be towed. The lightning strike also blew several holes in the road.

No way to really tell , like I said we can only go off the info given

I was expecting to hear a lot of swearing, or at least an 'Ow' or some sort of vocal reaction. Do you not feel lighting strike??

That was my first thought to..maybe it knocked him out?


Wish we had more info on this..

Or he's just a polite man who didn't want to swear on camera in case his Mum saw it. The obscenities came after the filming stopped.



Or stunned and in shock.

Is this really real?


The asynchronous sound could be just YouTube messing with the clip. That happens a lot. But I have a hard time imagining how the camera succeeded in not reacting - at all - to both the insane surge that "disabled Sheppard's vehicle and another passing car" and the intense flash.

I have no idea , I am going to have to assume yes until someone can prove it's not....I guess :/
