Lightning Strikes Five Yards Away From Man Filming The Storm In His Backyard

Lightning strikes have been known to leave massive craters in their wake, and seeing all that destructive power on a screen simply cannot compare to seeing a lightning strike up close and at risk of personal safety.

But 38-year-old Daniel Modol wasn't trying to live dangerously when he went outside to record the lightning storm raining down upon the town of Gjerstad, Norway, he was just enjoying the show when it all got a bit too real.

As he was filming the storm from his terrace a bolt of lightning struck his backyard about 5 meters to his right, sending Daniel and his friend scrambling back inside so as not to get zapped. Daniel came back out in a bit to document the destruction, including a 15-foot-wide crater.
