Storm chaser hit by lightning while recording storm

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to get struck by lightning, well, here you go.

Storm chaser Scott Sheppard gets hit by lightning while shooting video out the window near Fairburn, South Dakota.

The strike hit his arm and then traveled down to the ground and blew a hole in the pavement. The lightning also disabled his vehicle and a passing car, both of which had to be towed. Scott has a sore arm but is otherwise OK.

Check the one minute video below at the :15 mark.The video then  repeats for a little “slow-mo” effect.
