Lighting Strikes Just a Bit Too Close

A photographer trying to capture images of a lightning strike nearly gets hit by one.

Brian Skinner is seen standing on the beach in Newcastle Australia with his camera as a fierce storm passes over the area. He turns around to the video camera and smiles nervously when the first lightning strike hits nearby. But the second one comes even closer, striking the water's edge and making the ground shake beneath him, forcing him to abandon his camera.

According to the LiveLeak description, the lightning's current traveled through the water and to the camera, burning the photographer's hands.
