Shore Teen Lucky To Be Alive After Lightning Strike [Video]
Hot on the heels of a story we brought you only two weeks ago of two people being struck by lightning in Point Pleasant Beach, we have another story today of a lucky lighting survivor at the shore.
As the storm rolled in, he stopped to take video of the lightning that was striking the water nearby.
As Ethan filmed, a lightning bolt got terrifyingly close seconds before the next one struck within feet of him.

He was taken to the emergency room and thankfully survived without major injury.
It's a good reminder that if you can hear thunder, it's time to go indoors. Summer storms can be cool to watch, but watching from the shelter of a structure is the only truly safe way to watch!
