Direct Lightning Strike


Have you ever wonder what would happen if you got hit by a lightning strike? Well, check out what happens when we hit a mannequin with a simulated lightning strike at 75,000 volts & 200,000 amps in our Lightning lab!

A human hit by lightning would not have the exact same outcome as this fiber glass mannequin but you get an idea of how powerful a lightning strike can be. This brief video clip was recorded on a cell phone so our apologies on the shaking of the camera. We will post the video from an HD camera as soon as we can.
