SEATTLE - A man was struck by lightning during a morning thunderstorm that rolled through Seattle's Green Lake neighbhorhood on Saturday.

Robb Montejano was outside walking across a field and saw lightning, so he decided to record the storm with his camera phone.

"It was just on the off chance that I can catch the lightning on film," Montejano said.

In less than a minute after pressing record, Montejano saw more lightning and felt a jolt.

"I just felt this surge of electricity go 'boom' through my body," he said. "The electricity flowing through my body. I can't describe it. It was amazing."

Firefighters responded to the emergency call and say Montejano is doing fine, and was just a little shaken up.
