Squatting on the ground can avoid “getting struck by a lightning”

Prevention is better than cure. Also, besides looking at the sky, when a storm starts followed by electric discharges, we may avoid “getting struck by a lightning” by squatting with our hands over knees and feet together

That is how we can reduce the power of an electric discharge on human body, according to suggestions made to EFE by specialist in emergency and dermatology healthcare.
Even though, non-lethal injuries are the most frequent and only those who are next to a car, doing aquatic or outside sport in the middle of the electric storm can suffer from those damages.

Injuries that affect the cardiovascular system or the central nervous system are the most dangerous for humans.

Arrhythmias, asystole-no-beat, ventricular fibrillation or heart attacks, but also loss of consciousness, amnesia, bleeding, paralysis, edema and stroke.
Lightning strikes the Basilica of St. Peter the same day that Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignationStay indoors, close doors and windows, away from metal objects and electrical connections, such as radios, televisions or telephones, are other preventive measures, as well as working machinery off, leave the water or small boats.
The electrical storms are common in hot weather. In Spain, the registration record of lightning the August 17, 2003, with a total of 60,201 in one day.
But, the best known and most recent image of lightning was what fell in February on the dome of the Basilica of St. Peter’s Basilica hours after Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation to the Pontificate.

Altitude areas are receiving when clouds rays found in them conductive and hence the importance of the lightning conductor.
