Using aluminum pan when there’s a hail storm going on isn’t such a bad idea, but when you add lightning to the equation, it becomes a totally different case.
The incident occurred at the University of Texas-San Antonio last week, Redditor IVIIRAGE was apparently on the scene at the time wrote, and thankfully “the guy under the aluminum pan was alright. His thought process was the pan would block the softball size hail we were getting. He didn’t think it through.”
IVIIRAGE also said that the pan-wearing dude wasn’t hit by lightning but that “it was close by.” We haven’t yet heard from Aluminum Pan Guy, but here’s hoping he’ll know what to do in the future when it’s lightning outside.
