Man nearly struck by lightning is caught on camera
A school counselor in South Carolina posted a dramatic video to Facebook on Friday showing the precise moment lightning struck him as he walked in an apparent rainstorm.
Romulus McNeill said on Facebook that cameras caught his “crazy experience with lightning” before he was able to “motor scoot out of there without any major injuries.”
“It jolted me, honey,” McNeill said in a comment on the video. “I just knew I was done.”
McNeill appears to drop the umbrella as soon as it’s struck, the video shows. He then picks it back up and takes off running.
It was not immediately clear on Friday when or where the video was taken. According to Facebook, McNeill lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
