Bernard Williams, a 55-year-old from West Yorkshire in northern England,
had just left his car and was running to his house during a
thunderstorm on August 28.
Footage shows Mr Williams grab his gym bag from the boot of his car before dashing away.
Barely three seconds after he leaves, a lightning bolt hits a willow
tree behind his car, sending a 3m-long piece of wood flying across the
road to the spot where he was standing.
