I honestly had no idea standing near a tree during a storm was such a terrible idea, but apparently, it’s well-documented that you shouldn’t do it.
I just would have guessed that it was probably fine, but I also don’t really go outside when it’s lightning and storming.
Unfortunately for these four individuals, they were in the same boat I was in knowledge-wise and didn’t move. Now, one of them is dead and the other three are hospitalized.
Hopefully, more people see this video and learn to stay far away from trees if they ever find themselves in a storm with heavy lightning.
