Default sometimes you think you've been singled out...

Roughly 10 seconds after Coreas exits the dog park, he lands facedown on the concrete after being hit by lightning. The Texan’s three dogs are subsequently seen running away from the scene; however, they were later reunited with their owner.

Coreas suffered burns and lost some hearing in his left ear. His fall also left him with a swollen left eye that has remained shut since the incident occurred. He told KTRK that he has “no memory of being hit.”

A hole in the concrete was reportedly left in the spot where Coreas was hit.

Christy Mittler, a worker at the veterinary clinic, told local station KTRK that when she and other good Samaritans approached Coreas, he wasn’t breathing or moving, and his clothes were severely burned. “His shoes and his socks got blown off his feet,” she recalled. Mittler and two others administered CPR to Coreas until they felt his pulse return.

Yeah, I remember that clip being on the Weather Channel for a few days, a few weeks ago. That guy is extremely lucky!

Even better, the dogs were rounded up and reunited with the guy.
