Watch This Dude Come Within A Few Feet Of Getting Struck By Lightning

You have to think that sooner or later, people will finally come to the conclusion that standing outside during a thunderstorm while lightning strikes are slamming into the ground nearby is almost as bad an idea as going to a movie starring John Travolta.

This 16-year-old kid who decided to pull out his cellphone and film a recent storm in Bradley Beach, New Jersey, almost found out the hard way that you should get the hell out of there instead because he almost no longer had a pulse after a lightning strike came within a few feet of him.


“They said if I wasn’t holding onto my bike, I wouldn’t be here right now,” Ethan Riozzi-Bodine said.

Sadly, Riozzi-Bodine didn’t even have the excuse that he was too busy trying to catch Pokémon to notice the lightning around him. At least this time around, he was running around out there with his cellphone like an idiot on purpose.
