Australian Man Has Close Call With Lightning

An Australian man had an incredibly close call with a lightning strike at his home in Merriwa, New South Wales.

Ian Peterson, who said he filmed this video on December 8, told Storyful that he was watching a storm cell roll over his rural property when he saw the lightning strike from his veranda.
