A man in Arvada, Colorado is miraculously alive after he was struck by lightning.
“Chad Greenlees thought he was just watching a normal summer storm. Here comes the hail I think. But as the lightning grew closer to his Arvada house, Chad never thought he’d capture this.” [Via KDVR]
Greenless’ camera was rolling the entire time. Everything appeared to be somewhat tame before a deafeningly loud thunderclap. Greenless’ yell of pain made it very clear he had been struck.
He was left temporarily paralyzed. Even the following day after the strike, he was dealing with the aftermath. Greenless remarked “I was incoherent, my ear still really hurts and rings still.”
He is now recovering but he has a few bumps and bruises that act as evidence of what he went though. Greenless says he wont be chasing storms or leaving the garage door open when lightning strikes anytime in the near future.
The storm left 11,000 Arvada residents without power on Monday night. Many locals were left cleaning up damages sustained from broken tree limbs and hail.
