What happens when your video camera gets hit my lightning? See for yourself.

Friday, 11 July 2008
Slowloris over at Flickr was video taping a thunderstorm storm when the camera in her hand was hit by lightning

Below is the description over at Flickr:
Because you insisted, here's the unedited screaming version. I also added video from a minute before the lightning struck so you can get an idea of how hard it was raining. From what I understand, it went through my left hand holding the camera, crossed my back and exited out of my right hand holding onto the metal railing. No entry or exit wounds, just a really good zap!

Check out the crazy video here.
