Sean O’Connor, an Atlanta-area man, was blown out of his shoes this weekend by lightning shortly after picking up a rake. He heard a loud crack and thought it was a tree falling over. But it wasn’t.
ABC News reported:
Disoriented, O’Connor initially assumed he had gotten hit by a tree, until seeing his smoking shoe. “When I noticed my shoes were on the other side of the driveway and I heard the thunder, I realized it was lightning that had just hit me,” he said.
After collecting himself, O’Connor called his wife to tell her what had happened, sending her a cellphone video of the scene when she initially thought he was exaggerating. O’Connor’s wife then urged him to go to the hospital, where he was held for 24 hours because of an irregular heartbeat.
