Lightning strikes man on video: Soccer player survives after being struck by lightning
Peruvian soccer player Joao Contreras is lucky to be alive after he was struck by lightning and reported dead by the media. The 21-year-old player for Team Sport Aguila was on the field during a Copa Peru semifinal match against Fuerza Miner last Tuesday when a bolt of lightning hit him in an incident that was caught on camera during a live broadcast of the match. The lightning itself was barely visible, but the young defender can be clearly seen surrounded by white smoke afterwards. Contreras said a doctor later told him the lightning tore through face, traveling down his right side to his chest and stomach before exploding at his right ankle. Play was halted because several other players were also affected. Contreras woke up in the hospital and realized his jersey was torn up and both of his legs were numb. “At that moment I was dead, did not feel my legs. It was something inexplicable. I had the fright of my life. Right now I feel like I’ve been reborn,” he told El Comercio of Peru while he was still lying on his hospital bed. “I’d like to thank everyone who was worried about me, supporting me, giving me strength. I’ve got to thank the man upstairs too,” he added. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Lighting Strike - Amazing Lighting Strike - The power of Nature
Best Lighting Strike Of The Month 9 2016 Compilation | Lighting Strike 2016 Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DL_414f5YkM Subscribe Crash videos to be the first to see the new video: http://bit.ly/carcrashchannel A lightning strike is an electric discharge between the atmosphere and an earth-bound object. They mostly originate in the thundercloud and terminate on the ground, called cloud to ground (CG) lightning. A less common type of strike, called ground to cloud (GC), is upward propagating lightning initiated from a tall grounded object and reaches into the clouds. About 25% of all lightning events worldwide are strikes between the atmosphere and earth-bound objects. The bulk of lightning events are intracloud (IC) or cloud to cloud (CC), where discharges only occur high in the atmosphere. A single lightning event is a "flash", which is a complex, multi-stage process, some parts of which are not fully understood. Most ground to cloud flashes only "strike" one physical location, referred to as a "termination". The primary conducting channel, the bright coursing light that may be seen and is called a "strike", is only about one inch in diameter, but because of its extreme brilliance, it often looks much larger to the human eye and in photographs. Lightning discharges are typically miles long, but certain types of horizontal discharges can be upwards of tens of miles in length. The entire flash lasts only a fraction of a second. Most of the early formative and propagation stages are much dimmer and not visible to the human eye. Amazing Airplane Struck By Lightning: https://youtu.be/oqhUijxTjtI





Eddie Guerrero's heart attack
Eddie Guerrero in-ring heart attack. Many say it is scripted, may say that it is real. However this is not a reason to press the dislike button.
