Man hit by lightning suffers burnt scrotum

A SPANISH man is recovering in hospital after being struck by lightning in the scrotum.

The 53-year-old was treated for burns to the area, as well as his feet, after the bolt travelled down one of his legs while walking on wet grass in Madrid.

“All I felt was that I couldn’t move my legs,” said the man.
