A video posted on the Instagram account of the Topgolf golf club in San Antonio (Texas, USA), shows the moment in which a ball thrown by a young man is struck by lightning in the middle of a storm. Tomás Enrique Gómez’s ball, who was visiting the club together with brothers and friends, developed a speed of more than 140 kilometers per hour before being reached in mid-flight. “I was just happy that he hit the ball, and not me,” the 18-year-old confessed to the Daily Mail.
