- Henri Cheramie, 37, is being hailed by some netizens as “the luckiest man alive.”
- The teacher from Montgomery, Alabama miraculously survived after a giant tree was hit by lightning fell into his car.
- Rescuers later successfully pulled him out of the vehicle and he suffered minor cuts and bruises.
A man from Alabama recently made headlines after he luckily cheated certain death. According to reports, Montgomery resident Henri Cheramie miraculously survived after a tree struck by lightning fell into his car.
The incident happened last May 4, Tuesday. Apparently, the 37-year-old was staying in his vehicle during a terrible storm when he noticed a lightning. He decided to stand up to check it out and at that precise moment, a huge tree branch fell and landed on his car. He would have died if he stayed seated.
As Henri said in a media interview:
“I see lightning just arc across the sky and hit a tree. I lean a bit and go ‘did lightning just strike that’ and the next thing I know, half of my body is out of the sunroof and the top of the car is being weighed down by a giant branch that is bisected just where my face is.”
“My first thought was ‘is this a Monday or a Tuesday because this is the Mondayest Tuesday ever’,” the stand-up comedian turned middle school teacher also joked.
Soon after, lightning struck the second time and hit a powerline which later exploded.
“When that happened, electricity just sparked and everything lit up and I heard the power line pop and that’s when I started yelling for help,” he said. “I didn’t want to die.”
Fortunately, landscrapers working near the area saw the scene and immediately helped. They also contacted 911 to inform them about the situation. Firefighters eventually arrived to cut the car and tree then pull Henri out of the whole mess. He reportedly suffered bruises and minor cuts.
Henri later created a GoFundMe page where he wrote:
“I do need money to repair my van and get it back on the road. I also lost some technology (phone, laptop) and school related materials. I am asking for help with buying replacement parts for my van as well as the ability to pay those who will be repairing said van. I need new tires, an oil change, a tune up, and a new battery.
“Both my partner and I are school teachers, and with the summer coming up, work isn’t as readily available.”
