If you stand outside recording LIGHTNING . . . there's a chance you'll get STRUCK by it. It almost happened to a guy last month near Denver.  Luckily the lightning hit right next to him, and he was okay. 

 

On Saturday, it DID happen to a guy in Seattle.  To be fair, he wasn't in the middle of a storm.  He thought he was filming from a safe distance. According to the National Weather Service, lightning can strike as far away as 25 MILES from where a storm is located.
