Lightning strike close to a person (video)

Two radio amateurs from Brazil have luckily escaped danger after the lightning strike. The incident took place on January 10, 2021, seven km off the Minduri town (in the southern part of the Minas-Gerais state). 44-year-old Jose Omar de Oliveira and his friend Claudio Araujo Resende have climbed a hill to check their radio equipment. The former has decided to capture approaching thunderclouds via his mobile phone. This moment, the lightning has got into the wooden fencing pole, and the friends were thrown away to the side. They have got only several scratches and did not need any medical assistance. See video for details:
