Caught on film: blinding lightning bolt strikes commuter train in Japan
A Tokyo resident filmed the moment an Odakyu Electric Railway train travelling from the Izumi-Tamagawa Station to Noborito Station took a direct hit of lightning on Monday evening.
Too lazy to watch the video? Watch it in GIF:
The train was travelling over a railway bridge when it was struck sending sparks flying at the front of the train as it slowed to a stop. The passengers onboard reported carriages suddenly went dark as the train temporarily lost power.
There were no reported injuries and the train regained power and was able to move again after 10 minutes.
Like, OMG that’s freaking scary!!
