Lightning Never Strikes Twice? (B2)

In 1942 lightning struck Roy C. Sullivan for the first time. The US park ranger was working up in a lookout tower when a bolt shot through his leg. It knocked his big toenail off.

‘I was lucky,’ Roy told his friends. ‘I can live without one big toenail. And at least it won’t happen again! Lightning never strikes twice in the same place.’

But is that true?
