    The nickname "Lightning Rod" seems like a fair one for Rod Wolfe. He's now survived two lightning strikes!

    Wolfe was outside his Chebanse home on Saturday when everything suddenly went black. It turns out lightning hit a nearby tree then traveled into Wolfe's body.

    He ended up in the hospital with broken ribs and cardiac problems, but his doctor says it could have been far worse.

    "Everybody says I am a lucky person and I say how can I be a lucky person? But they say yeah, but you survived twice," Wolfe said.

    Wolfe said this strike was far worse than when he got hit while working at a cemetery 18 years ago.

    If you don't get superpowers from it I wouldn't call it lucky.
