Texas man captures lightning strike on camera

SAN ANTONIO – Catching lightning in a bottle is just an expression, but in San Antonio, for a sudden, split-second, it looked like one man nearly did.

The flash was so intensely bright it looked like it nearly hit photographer Chris Alderete.

But on closer inspection, it hit right across the street.

He just wanted to shoot the lightning storm; he never dreamed it might shoot back.

Fortunately, there were no reports of injuries, just one very shaken photographer.
