Man Struck By lighting TWICE
- A 31 year old man named Casey Wagner beats the odds as he gets struck by lightning the 2nd time! What might have attracted the lightning to Casey Wagner was his plastic poncho. ¬† Wagner told¬†KTVT-TV
‚ÄúWhat I remember is just a loud boom and it dropped me to my knees and then it hit me again,‚Äù
‚ÄúWhen I got hit, it was just two big ol‚Äô flashes and then sparks went everywhere.‚Äù
The chances of being struck by lightening in a¬†LIFETIME¬†= 1 in 6,250. There is a¬†70% chance¬†of surviving a lightning strike, depending on the voltage. The man was being cared for by a nurse until he got to the hospital and was put on a monitor.
Next time you wear your plastic poncho, refer back to this story.
