ANSWER 1

Well i was watching lately a documentary on Discovery channel, they were talking about strange facts, describing on a reconstruction how some people defeated death amazingly. By coincidence there have been a man living in the US, he was strucked by lightning for four times, each time on different circumstances and now he's still alive luckily but unfortunately he suffers now from some pains increasing exponentially by the number of times a lightening stuck him. He mentioned that it may be related to heredity because his grandfather aunt and a cousin (as i remember) were strucked also by this huge enormous phenomenous of goddess nature.

ANSWER 2

When it comes to being a human lightning rod Roy C. Sullivan is the iron clad holder of the title. Roy C. Sullivan was a U.S. forest ranger in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and it seemed that having an electric personality prerequisite for his job. Lightning strike #1 came in 1942 in a fire lookout tower. Lightning strike #2 came in 1969when he was in his truck. Lightning strike #3 came in 1970 in his front yard. Lightning strike #4 came in 1972 in a ranger station. Lightning strike #5 came on August 7, 1973 while he was in his car. Lightning strike #6 came on June 5, 1974 in a campground. Lightning strike #7 came on June 25, 1977 while fishing.

Maybe or maybe not. It just depends on how hard the pot hit and how fast it fell or how close the person is to the pot when it got struck by lightning.

People who have been struck by Lightning does not carry a residual charge. Lightning goes straight through the body and into the ground. There would be no electrical charge left and they would be safe to touch.

Lightning never strikes the same place twice.

User Avatar

Fact - lightning can strike twice in the same place - which is part of what we rely on when installing lightning rods. However, when applied to an individual, that person makes sure that it does not happen to them again. Another fact. (Although a few people have been struck multiple times by lightning and lived to tell about it)
