Fourth time is a charm
Alexander Mandón has been struck by lightning not once, twice, three, but FOUR TIMES! Not only has he been struck by lightning four times, but he was struck by lightning four times in the past 6 MONTHS!
After being struck by lightning so many times, Mr. Mandón sought the help of the village healer.
The healer assessed him and determined Mr. Mandón should bury himself to rid the electrical charge.
Mr. Mandón obliged and was buried. After a few hours of the healing powers of dirt, Mr. Mandón learned he had been doing it incorrectly!
He was buried lying down, but the good ol’ doc pointed out he needed to be standing up for the treatment to work.
Only time will tell if the unconventional treatment will work. The team here at Ripley’s hopes for the best!

This guy was NOT struck by lightning (not ‘lightening’). He was ‘nearly’ stricken by lightning. Had he been directly stricken by lightning, his blood would have instantly boiled, destroying his heart and brain. Most likely he would have literally exploded.
Hahaha… sad but true
He probably was indirectly struck by the lightning traveling through the surroundings. If he was nearly stricken, that would mean the lightning did not touch him at all.
And to sum it up…
Thankfully every lightning strike is not a fatal strike. According to a the National Weather Service (NWS), 90 percent of lightning strike victims survive, though survivors can still be left with lingering and debilitating health issues.
Why doesnt he just get extra rubber sole on his boots
