    Wtf is that supposed to mean. Either you get hit by lighting or you don't. You don't partially get hit by lightning. I think this guy is bullshitting and claiming he got hit when it struck the power lines above him or something.

    Actually you do if you survive it. When lighting strikes, it often springs up in kind of cone formation toward the main bolt coming from the clouds (along with many other kinds; sheet, ball, etc...).

    Kind of an inverse version of this, springing upwards.

    If you are standing in the middle of that, your chance of survival is basically nil.

    Ok, here's what I mean. If lightning was that close nearby, it would probably blind you with how bright it was. You would have no idea where it hit. He also seems to point out that he saw the light first then heard a boom. Being that close would probably feel like being near an explosion. You wouldn't see the light then hear it like when it's miles away. Could just be the writer though.

    And really, scrambled your brain and gave you an irregular heartbeat? You mean you freaked out and panicked?

    The part that makes the least amount of sense was when he says he used the ham radio that was in his hand to contact someone. If he had really been hit by the actual charge, that thing would not have been working.

    My guess is that it hit nearby, he freaked out jumped through the air and then shit himself.
