Getting hit by lightning is a good way to lose a DOT medical certificate because of irregular heartbeat.

Not to mention erratic cognitive capabilities.

As the old joke goes, they should have had a 1 iron.

Because not even God can hit a 1 iron.

A lightening strike is one of the major causes of fatalities related to natural occurring phenomenon each year (in the US alone, the average is around 75 deaths per year), often higher then the number killed by floods, hurricanes and tornadoes. The reason we don't hear more about this is because it's usually only a single person being affected at a time. If it had been just one person injured, we would not have heard about the above incident except for the possible exception of it being captured on video.

As for the types of people killed by lightening strikes each year, in addition to golfers, we also have farmers and construction workers as the most likely victims.

Lightening strikes? Is that where someone throws white paint on a black person?
