Man struck by lightning lives to tell tale
Sean Ramsay is either the luckiest — or the unluckiest — man on Vancouver Island. The Victoria resident was struck by lightning while working at an RV park Tuesday and while he’s still in a lot of pain, he’s fortunate to have even survived.
Ramsay was working at the Fort Victoria RV Park on Tuesday morning when a thunderstorm moved in – a rare event on the south part of Vancouver Island. As he filled up an RV with propane, a bolt of lightning struck a tree about three metres away, sending electricity down into the ground underneath Ramsay’s feet.
