According to B&T’s quick Google search, you have one in 700,000 chance of being struck by lightning.

Arguably, those chances increase exponentially if you’re a TV weather reporter whose job it is to cover inclement weather patterns.

And that was certainly the case for Fox 10 Phoenix reporter Matt Rodewald who had a very close shave with a rogue lightning bolt while covering a monsoon storm in Phoenix over the weekend.

Check out Rodewald’s near miss and, to his credit, rather calm response below:

Viewers soon took to social media to applaud Rodewald’s composure.

Holy shit bro! You’re so lucky to still be breathing!” wrote one Twitter user.

While another added: “Yikes! I can tell you as an avid weather watcher, there is no shot worth risking your life for! I’m fine with reporting from the safety of the studio.”
