Through out the history, people have been terrified by lightning, and it was even considered a tool of the gods. Experts claim that lightning can generate temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun! Some guy from Norway thought he was safe when he went outside to film a far away lightning storm. He was so wrong, and this mistake could have cost him his life..
Daniel Modøl was standing out on his terrace in Gjerstad in Norway. He was trying to capture the lightning strike in the horizon, when something truly terrifying happened. The bolt hit just 15 feet away from him and left a crater in his backyard. He did not catch the actual strike, but he witnessed the results. That is when he decided to go back inside.
Even the video looks frightening and I can not imagine how it was for Daniel. I am sure he won’t make the same mistake twice. Watch the footage and tell us what you think about it.
