    If you thought you were having a bad day take a look at this poor chap in Florida, US, who was hit by lightning in broad daylight.

    A video has appeared on YouTube showing an airport worker near an airplane at the international airport in Fort Myers.

    Suddenly a flash of lightning hits the plane and the worker gets electrocuted collapsing to the ground.

    A few seconds later another worker jumps out of the vehicle and runs to the victim.

    According to the Airlive website, the worker was 21-year-old Austin Dunn, who luckily survived the electric shock but was hospitalized having received third degree burns, injuries and cerebral hemorrhaging.
