PARADIS, LA - That was too close for comfort!

A Paradis man hit the ground after a lightning bolt struck feet from him, his grand daughter, and a dog.

Carla Watson Boudreax shared a video of Malvin Boudreaux outside a home in Paradis.

Around 6:20 p.m. Malvin can be seen walking up the steps of his home with his grandaughter when a bolt of lightning strikes behind him.

The video shows Malvin hit the ground, scoop up the child, and run inside.

Southwest Louisiana has experienced several strong, spotty showers all week. Always remember when severe weather is in the forecast to stay inside.
