TOKYO – A man capturing a lightning storm on video in Japan ended up with something wilder than he could have even imagined.
The video, uploaded Monday by YouTube user artcgate01, shows a train moving through Toyko when it’s struck by a huge lightning bolt. The train then comes to a stop a short distance away, apparently just short of an official stop.
The user said the lightning strike hit the Odakyu line train.
One of the passengers uploaded video of the resulting blackout. There appeared to be no injuries, and everyone onboard remained calm. The train started moving again a short time later.
