GIZMODOA lightning struck a 53-year-old man’s scrotum and then exited his body through one of his feet in Madrid, Spain. The good news: he survived. The bad news: his testicles were burned. A lucky man. Or maybe not.

He fell unconscious. His son called the emergency services, who treated the burns on his scrotum and feet. They moved him to the Hospital de la Paz, where he got interned.
