Lightning Isn’t So Funny When It’s Not On Caddyshack
The story of Danish footballer Jonathan Richter has taken a turn for the worse with the news that his lower leg was amputated after being struck by lightning during a friendly six weeks ago.
A message on the club’s website yesterday read: “Jonathan’s progress means a lot to the Richter family, friends and all involved with FC Nordsjaelland, but the family now request that all continue to respect the peace that Jonathan needs in the future as he faces tough rehabilitation.”
There isn’t any footage of the Richter strike but check this footage from a match in South Africa.
Keep in mind the lightning hit the wet ground as opposed to a person. According to police, Richter suffered a direct hit to the head or chest. We’re surprised that the lightning didn’t give him superpowers like Black Lightning. Losing a lower leg is a small price to pay for the ability to give a Super Shocker to the ladies. Wait until they get a taste of his Reverse Shocker.
