A mother in Argentina captured the moment her 12-year-old son was almost hit by lightning while playing in the rain.
The unnamed boy is seen in the video playing with his umbrella under a downspout before walking out into a grassy area near his home.
Just then, a powerful bolt of lightning strikes just feet from where the boy is standing.
The boy’s mother says her son survived the incident, according to multiple reports.
