Two fishermen struck by lightning on Caloosahatchee

FORT MYERS, Fla.– Two men were fishing on the Caloosahatchee River on Saturday, near Fort Myers, when their fishing pole was struck by lightning.

The boaters said they saw a storm approaching but the rain had not hit them yet. They were packing up and about to head back when suddenly they saw a bright flash and a loud bang. 

“It was an immense noise for a second both of us were completely speechless,” said Sam Buduris.

Their fishing pole caught on fire but the flames quickly died out. The boaters were able to get one of their motors partially working after the strike so they were slowly able to make it back home.

They said they are both thankful they are alive and uninjured.

“We are really lucky to be alive,” said Marlon Munoz.
