SHOCKING: You won't believe what happened to this guy!
He was struck by lightening -- not once, not twice, but THREE times in his lifetime! The odds of this happening to someone must be one in 100 billion!
But there's more...
It turns out that in 1916, four years after he died, his grave was also struck by lightening! He was a living, breathing lightning rod on earth, and even when he was dead, the poor man couldn't get a break!
Records show that he was a sportsman, meaning his profession increased his chances of getting hit considerably.
Getting struck by lightening once is scary enough; I can't imagine going through that ordeal three times.
Summerford was fortunate enough to survive after being struck on three occasions.
Yet, even more shocking is the fact that a U.S. park ranger named Roy Sullivan was hit by lightning on SEVEN different occasions, earning the nickname "Human Lightning Conductor" and a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the person struck by lightning more times than any other human being. Ironically, he later died from a gunshot wound to the head.
I can't imagine what it must have been like for these men to be struck multiple times and live to tell the story. It really is shocking (no pun intended).
Do you know anyone who's been hit by lightning? Have you heard of such an incident in the news?
