Man ‘is saved by his penis’ after he is struck by lightning

Posted on

Pic shows: cover of newspaper showing Zoran Jurkovic. Doctors say a cyclist survived after being struck on the head by a bolt of lightning after the electricity earthed itself through his penis. Zoran Jurkovic, 41, from the small eastern Croatian village of Petrovci had been walking along listening to his headphones when the thunderstorm started. At the time he had been wearing his working overalls, which included a high visibility jacket and fix old rubber boots. Because he had the boots on, the electricity was not able to earth through his feet, but apparently after striking him on the head doctors claimed that instead of passing through his body, probably destroying his internal organs and stopping his heart, the electricity had followed the cables of the headphones. They said it had then left his body by earthing through his private parts. They said that the small radio he had been carrying had been clipped onto his belt and that he had been riding on his bike when the storm broke out. He said: "I saw black clouds and flashes of light appear in the sky and thunder could be heard booming across the nearby fields. I tried to ride faster to get to shelter in time, but I was too late." Passers-by driving in a van witnessed the incident and one of them told local media: "We were shocked when we saw the man. He was sat in the rain and steam was coming out of his body. "The bicycle was next to him. We took him in our van and drove him to the hospital. Doctors were also amazed that he was alive." The medics said that it was a miracle that the lightning charge had bypassed Zoran’s chest and missed his heart. (ends)

Doctors have hailed a man’s penis a miracle after his genitals saved his life after he was struck by lightning.

The medics said that it was a miracle that the lightning charge had bypassed Zoran’s chest and missed his heart.

At the time he was wearing his work overalls, which included a high visibility jacket and thick old rubber boots.

Because of the boots, the electricity was not able to earth through his feet, but after striking him on the head doctors claimed that instead of passing through his body – and most likely destroying his internal organs and stopping his heart – the electricity had followed the cables of the headphones.

The lucky escapee said: “I saw black clouds and flashes of light appear in the sky and thunder could be heard booming across the nearby fields. I tried to ride faster to get to shelter in time, but I was too late.”
