A South Carolina school counselor was walking on campus when a bolt of lightning nearly struck him, missing by inches.
Romulus McNeill can be seen in the video (below) walking on the sidewalk near the Academy for Technology and Academics campus while holding an umbrella.
All of a sudden, a bolt of lightning came shooting down from the sky, almost striking him.
A nearby surveillance camera captured the shocking moment.
McNeill told local media he "felt a shock."
