First-Person Video: Storm Chaser Gets Struck by Lightning

FAIRBURN, N.D., May 28 (UPI) — A storm chaser in South Dakota recorded first-person video of himself getting struck by lightning Tuesday, and both the video and the chaser survived.

Scott Shepherd was tracking a storm outside of Fairburn, not far from South Dakota’s western border, when his truck was struck by lightning, while the camera was rolling. The truck, which had to be towed from the scene, did not shelter Shepherd, as the bolt struck him in the arm.

Miraculously, Shepherd walked away with no major injury.

“Scott has a sore arm but is otherwise ok,” said the weather-focused production company he was working for.
