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.
