A man walked under an umbrella down the road when it was struck by lightning, but did not seem to understand.
A resident of the US remained alive after it was struck by lightning. This case occurred in the state of South California. An American was walking down the street, hiding behind an umbrella from the heavy rain. At some point it was struck by lightning. She literally knocked the man off his feet, writes RIA Novosti with reference to the TV station WSOC.
However, apparently, he did not understand, although perhaps this is due to a state of shock. The victim was able to stand on their own, and then went on. According to statistics, the day the planet is approximately eight million lightning flashes. In the United States each year from its strike killed more than 30 people. As statistics show, usually a tragedy ends in “meetings” with lightning, when people hide under the trees or during a thunderstorm next to the car.
Also there were cases when the lightning hits the person at the time of his conversation on his mobile phone. That is why rescuers are urged not to use telephones during a thunderstorm.
