JP Nadeau was purportedly struck by lightning mid-sentence in his apple plantation in New Brunswick, Canada.

“And just as I told my new son-in-law ‘You’re a lucky guy’ – Boom!” he told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Beside a little scar on his thumb, Mr Nadeau says he was unscathed and the wedding continued.

Storm cloud had assembled behind him at the ceremony on 8 July, he stated, and his little girl saw lightning strike the ground close-by.

“I had the microphone and the shock jumped into the sound system and my hand just lit up and I saw the spark,” he told the CBC.

“And I’m looking at my hand and it’s all flared up… It was like I was holding a lightning bolt in my hand, it was amazing.”

Everybody was shocked at first, yet that didn’t prevent the cheerful couple from proceeding with the celebrations.

“It was a beautiful wedding,” Mr Nadeau’s wife, Maggy Thomas, told the CBC.

“But that was pretty terrifying for a second.”

Mr Nadeau says he’s a fortunate unfortunate man – in 2015, a cruise ship he was working on near Falkland Islands burst into flames, and he was saved by the British Royal Air Force.

“I’ve had lots of brushes with death,” said Mr Nadeau. “But death keeps ignoring me.”
