Next time you venture out to record an intense storm, you may want to keep an eye out for lightning.

Chad Greenless, a resident of Arvade, Colorado was standing on his front porch with a camera in hand, ready to record an intense summer storm Monday night.

It was in the middle of filming that the unexpected happened: Greenless was struck by the very lightning he had set out to record.

It's not the first time an attempt to use technology has resulted in a lightning strike, either. Just last week, a Peterborogh man was struck by lightning when he tried to live tweet a storm.

Eyewitness News reported that Greenless was paralyzed at the moment of contact, but is now slowly recovering at home.
