A New Brunswick father didn’t mean to steal his daughter’s thunder on her wedding day, but that’s exactly what happened when he was struck by lightning in the middle of his speech to the bride and groom.
JP Nadeau of Woodstock, N.B., recalls last weekend’s heat was starting to make the guests uncomfortable in their formal clothes when the groom’s father handed him the microphone.
He only got a few words into his remarks, telling the groom how lucky he was to be marrying his daughter, when he said he felt a powerful surge accompanied by a loud crack.
“I said, ‘You know Adam, you are one lucky guy.’ And just with ‘lucky guy,’ all of a sudden there was this bam,” he told CTV News Channel from Woodstock, N.B.
