Texan man Alexander Coreas was hit by a lightning strike while he was walking his dogs in a Houston suburb. Fortunately, workers at the clinic rushed to help the injured man. According to them, the bolt was so powerful that it burned his clothes and blew his shoes and socks right off his feet. The lightning also left a gaping hole in the concrete where the man was hit.
Coreas sustained multiple injuries, including fractured ribs, burns, a swollen eye, and muscle damage, but the timely aid allowed him to survive, KTRK reported.
