#1- Roy Sullivan

As rare as it seems to get hit 11 times. There is a guy named Roy Sullivan who has been struck by lightning seven times between 1942 and 1977. Sullivan worked as a U.S park ranger in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. The lightning seemed to have a terrible attraction to him and he earned the nickname ‘Human Conductor’. Once he got hit while in his truck which acted like a Faraday’s Cage and diverted the electric charge to the ground. While another time he got hit inside the station. He swore that the clouds followed him and that was when he was hit fifth and sixth time. His last encounter was the craziest. When he got struck while fishing in a boat and had to fight off a bear who tried to steal his fish.

All of his seven hits were documented. He became a media sensation who also holds a placement in Guinness Book of World Record; As the man who survived most of the lightning strikes. Sadly, he shot himself in the head in 1983.
