Wear iPod, Attract Lightning

ipod lightning injury picture

By David Ponce

What I’d like to know is just what this fella was thinking by mowing the lawn while thunder clouds hovered above? Perhaps he wanted to get the grass cut in time before the downpour. Whatever the case, this is him after he got struck by lightning while wearing his iPod. As you can see, current traveled along the wires, burning the side of his face and ear, and causing some permanent hearing loss.

The lesson? Well, there’s no lesson really. Just don’t wear any kind of metal anything on your person when a storm nears.
