Woman With No Fear Films Lightning Strike Right Next to Her

Subscribe to TheFW on

We all know lightning strikes are dangerous and scary. This up-close look at one proves it.

A woman in Ireland was filming a rainstorm for her mother — who loves weather — when disaster nearly struck. The clip seemed pretty ho-hum when a bolt lightning struck in a most terrifying fashion across the courtyard where she was standing.

You can hear a thunderous bang and a burst of light as the lightning reaches the ground in a scene that would make just about anyone jump out of his or her shoes.

There wasn’t any damage, leading some people to think the lightning that hit the building where the woman was standing was merely a reflection.

Either way, she was insanely close to lightning. Not that we needed a reminder, but when it’s pouring outside, the best thing to do is just stay inside.
