When you go outside wanting to capture lightning on camera, there's a more than slight chance you could get struck by it…
So when daredevil weather enthusiast Robb Montejano decided to walk across an open field wielding a camera phone, he knew the risk involved!
In the YouTube video before the strike, you can hear the man say:
"Just on the off-chance that I can catch lightning on film during the daytime, it would be really cool. But I don't know if it's gonna happen. I'll give it a minute here. But it would be really, really cool to see."
Then, BANG! The camera goes black and you know the shocking results…
After firefighters and paramedics responded to the call and made sure he was okay, Robb revealed his would-be brush with death was simply indescribable:
"I just felt this surge of electricity go 'boom' through my body. The electricity flowing through my body. I can't describe it. It was amazing."
