Man struck by lightning ... in the scrotum

275x250.jpg If you think you've had a bad day recently, spare a thought for a 53-year-old man in Madrid who was struck by lightning… in his scrotum.

The unfortunate gent is said to have been walking down a street in the Spanish capital with his son when he was hit by a bolt of lightning and left unconscious.

The lightning is reported to have travelled down his leg before striking the ground. His son called for paramedics who took him to Hospital de la Paz.

Doctors say his heart and brain functions were not affected in the incident and that the man is now in a stable condition.

While we're glad about his heart and brain, we'd also like to know whether other body parts survived the lightning strike unscathed.
