Is it any wonder his nickname is “Lightning Rod”?
Rod Wolfe of Chebanse, Ill., was standing outside his home on June 20 when a tree next to him was hit by a lightning bolt. The charge traveled through his body but didn’t kill him, ABC 7 Chicago reports. He did, however, end up in the hospital with broken ribs and some cardiac problems.
Eighteen years earlier, Wolfe was hit by lightning while working in a cemetery.
“Everybody says I am a lucky person and I say, How can I be a lucky person?” Wolfe told ABC 7 Chicago. “They say, Yeah, but you survived twice.”
