My whole hand — it was like I had a bolt of lightning in my hand. I must have jumped, I’m sure I jumped, because I felt a major shock, but after that I was kind of OK. I didn’t feel anything, and everyone is amazed I’m alive,” he said. “A lot of lesser men would have perished. But I don’t know how it happened that I could just walk, scot free.”
