ALBERTA, CANADA –Al and Betty Perry are lucky to be alive after their pickup truck was struck by lightning in Alberta, Canada.

The couple’s encounter with the lightning bolt was captured on a security surveilance camera across the street. After the bolt struck the car, the Perry’s car was enguled with smoke, and the couple desperately attempted to escape the vehicle, but the shorted electrical system prevented their escape. Fortunately for the Perry’s, a policeman just happened to be driving nearby and he came to their rescue.
