Struck by lightning right when telling a new son in law how lucky he was.... Odd.


"And just as I told my new son-in-law 'You're a lucky guy' – Boom




While giving a speech on his daughters wedding day JP Nadeau was struck by lightning. Oddly enough he was unharmed.


A New Brunswick man said he wasn't trying to steal anyone's thunder when he gave a speech at his daughter's wedding and was struck by lightning.

But it did shock his family, said JP Nadeau.

Luckily, he was unharmed.

"They thought I was going to drop dead," said Nadeau, who hosted his daughter's wedding in his backyard apple orchard in Lower Woodstock on July 8.

He did have a scorched thumb, and said it was like he was holding the lightning in his hand. All and all a very lucky man, he said the lightning strike made his knees feel better.


After the lightning strike, Nadeau said he now has a scorch mark on his thumb.

He thinks it's where the electricity jumped in and out of his body.

"But I am fine," he said. "Even my knee actually feels a bit better."

lol at all the puns used. Being struck by lightning and surviving. I don't know whether to call it luck or just consider him a tough badass. Either way, glad it turned out ok.

Want to make any odds on how long the marriage lasts?

I believe they will live happily ever after. Probably this event will solidify their commitment. Thats what I feel anyways.

Yes, several bright milliseconds and a millimetre or two of scorched hair should be long enough for anyone.

What's my prize?

You are a lucky guy-then his new father in law gets hit by lightning.

Wow...I bet it made the groom think.

Wow who was that guy that got struck by lightning and had a life-changing NDE? Can't remember his name but he was on George Noory and stuff.

I'd rather hit megabucks though.

I would go for the NDE. Imagine the clarity and knowledge you would gain-money would not even be close.

Good thing it happened in Canada. If he was seriously injured he wouldn't have to foot a $15,000 - $25,000 hospital bill on top of the cost of his daughters' wedding.

To become a Shaman you are supposed to be struck by lightning. Maybe just holding onto the lawnmower sparkplug would be better.
