A viewer watching a passing thunderstorm was shooting video of that storm and got a close call from Mother Nature.
On Labor Day Weekend, Ricky Vickers was in Hartford. Lightning from a thunderstorm from around 6:30pm on Sunday caught his interest and he brought out his camera to record video of the storm.
Vickers describes what happens next, "I was taking some footage of lightning on Sunday evening before the lightning got too close, I asked for one more good shot, and got more than I bargained for."
