VIDEO: Lightning strikes more than twice

Don’t tell Tucker K. Owings that lightning never strikes twice.

The 18-year-old pro bass angler watched seven consecutive strikes hit the water just ahead of his boat on a Texas lake last Saturday.

"We were literally feeling what I would describe as static on our rods," Tucker told KPHO News. "At that point we quickly started to head to the ramp.”

A GoPro camera mounted on the boat captured the electrifying scene on Lake Athens and Tucker posted the video on his Facebook page.

As of Wednesday morning, the clip had been shared 36,839 times and had 5,798 “Likes.”
