Video: Dramatic footage of lightning strike hitting woman and daughter
THIS video footage was recorded from a dashcam, in Omsk, Russia – showing the moment lightning hit a woman and her daughter.
Fortunately the 28-year-old mother and her six-year-old daughter survived the strike and were hospitalised with only first and second degree burns.
The pair can be seen standing at the side of a busy road holding onto an umbrella in the lashing rain.
The lightning was attracted to the umbrella and struck it three times.
