Being caught in the middle of a lightning strike is a terrifying prospect.

As well as this, being near a huge conductor such as a plane can put someone in much more danger.

One man who had the bad luck to be near one whilst working ended up suffering the terrifying consequences.

It is certainly a nerve wracking watch.

Thankfully, he survived the strike and was rushed to the hospital, suffering from third-degree burns and a bleed on the brain.

He then spent two weeks recovering but is reported to have been discharged.

His father, Kyle Dunn posted on Facebook: “Austin is sleeping a lot and mending physically and mentally, then Friday we start treatments up here in Tampa for his 3rd-degree burns on his hand.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist in his future medical bills for the treatment he will need regarding nerve damage to his legs.
