Lightning almost hits a fisherman's boat!

by Jason Hillery

A pro-fisherman (Tucker K. Owings from Texas), who also happens to be 16-years-old, was out bass fishing on Lake Athens when a storm rolled in.

He said he could feel static electricity in his rods, so he decided to pack it in and head for dry ground. As he was cruising to the dock, his boat nearly got zapped!
