It is not always possible to know exactly how a victim has been struck, but here is a list of ways that lightning strikes its victims. Any Kamikaze - Lightning Strikes - Lightning Strikes these types of strikes can be deadly. Immediate medical attention, including callingstarting CPR, and using an AED, may be critically important to keep the person alive until more advanced medical care arrives. A person struck directly by lightning becomes a part of the main lightning discharge channel.
Most often, direct strikes occur to victims who are in open areas. Direct strikes are not as common as the other ways people are struck by lightning, but they are potentially the most deadly.

While the ability to survive any lightning strike is related to immediate medical attention, the amount of current moving through the body is also a factor. A side flash Icon - Rollins Band - Weight called a side splash occurs when lightning strikes Kamikaze - Lightning Strikes - Lightning Strikes taller object near the victim and a portion of the current jumps from taller object to the victim.
Side flashes generally occur when the victim is within a foot or two of the object that is struck. Most often, side flash victims have taken shelter under a tree to avoid rain or hail.
When lightning Kamikaze - Lightning Strikes - Lightning Strikes a tree or other object, much of the energy travels outward from the strike in and along the ground surface.
This is known as the ground current. Anyone outside near a lightning strike is potentially a victim of ground current. In addition, ground current can travels in garage floors with conductive materials. Because the ground current affects a much larger area than the other causes of lightning casualties, the ground current causes the most lightning deaths and injuries. Ground current also kills many farm animals. The greater the distance between contact points, the greater the potential for death or serious injury.
Because large farm animals have a relatively large body-span, ground current from a nearby lightning strike is often fatal to livestock. Lightning can travel long distances in wires or other metal surfaces. Metal does not attract lightning, but it provides a path for the lightning to follow. Most indoor lightning casualties and some outdoor casualties are due to conduction. Whether inside or outside, anyone in contact with anything connected to metal wires, plumbing, or metal surfaces that extend outside is at risk.
This includes anything that plugs into an electrical outlet, water faucets and showers, corded phones, and windows and doors. Streamers develop as the downward-moving leader approaches the ground. Typically, only one of the streamers makes contact with the leader as it approaches the ground and provides the path for the bright return stroke; however, when the main channel discharges, so do all the other streamers in the area. If a person is part of one of these streamers, they could be killed or injured during the streamer discharge even though the lightning channel was not completed between the cloud and the upward streamer.
