Surviving a lightning strike is truly a miracle. One has to be extremely lucky just like this Texas man's case that serves as one of the biggest examples indicating that if you have fate (and medical facilities) by your side, no lightning strike can take your life away. The 27-year-old man named Alex Coreas was recently struck by lightning while walking his dogs last week near Houston. He not only survived but is finally back with his animals after they ran off in fright, following the incident. Good samaritans ran to his rescue as they saw him fall down. One performed CPR to save his life, which the medics believe was an intelligent move. Surveillance cameras recorded the whole scene. The video is going viral ever since. The video shows moments when the lightning strike blew Coreas’ shoes and socks off, leaving him standing stock-still.

"I had to see the video to know what happened to me," Corea told Inside Edition. Witness Corey Hart, who was in his car at the time, rushed over to Coreas to help him. Hospital employees Christy Mittler and Bill Williams also rushed to the scene to help, as per reports. Mittler said Coreas’ clothing was charred and his socks and shoes were blown off. Earlier this year, at least 30 people were killed and over a dozen others injured in incidents of lightning strikes across Bihar, India in 24 hours. The deaths occurred in Bhagalpur, Begusarai, Saharsa, Purnea, Araria, Katihar, Jamui, Khagaria, Madyepura, Madhubani, Darbhanga, Sitamarhi, Mitigari and Gaya districts.
