16 Year-Old Soccer Goalie Is Struck by Lightning

A 16 year old soccer player in Russia is lucky to be alive after being struck by lightning. A surveillance camera caught the moment Ivan Zaborovsky was hit during a warmup with his team. His coach, Anton Basov, ran over to Ivan, and found a burn mark on the front of his jersey. The coach performed first aid, and then Ivan was taken to a hospital, where he was placed in a medically-induced coma. Now, three weeks later, Ivan is back on the field, with no memory of the incident.
