Yard work almost turned deadly for a man hit by lightning in Coweta County.
Channel 2′s Liz Artz spoke with the man at his home on Britain Way in Newnan.
Sean O’Connor said he was raking leaves Saturday afternoon when a bolt of lightning came down and struck him in the right foot.
“I heard the loud crack and next thing I know, I was over here on the side of my driveway,” said O’Connor.
At first he thought he was hit by a falling tree limb.
“When I stood up, I had blood in my mouth. I could smell burnt hair; felt like I had a bad sunburn on my leg,” he told Artz.
