Lightning strikes just feet away from a lucky man who recorded a violent storm on camera. Rocket scientist Bruce Hyland, 63, and three friends were camping at Shoshone Lake in Wyoming when a sudden hailstorm rolled in. Bruce pulled out his camera to film the weather wreaking havoc on the lake surface, but instead got lucky with a perfect shot of the strike. The event happened so fast that Bruce, from Orangevale, California, didn’t realise he had caught it on camera until they played the video footage and saw the strike erupted just 30ft away from where they had been standing.
