Lightning Strikes Pitch During Colombian Soccer Match (Video)

A frightening scene took place over the weekend during a Colombian league soccer match between La Equidad and Atletico Nacional, as lightning struck the pitch, sending several players from both teams to the ground in fear.  One player could even be seen performing the sign of the cross (14 second mark).

Oddly enough, the officials were not having any mercy on the players as they allowed play to continue, despite the growing fear that at any moment someone could be on the receiving end of a deadly bolt of lightning.  Luckily, that wasn’t the case as both teams would safely leave the pitch after 90 minutes, playing to a 1-1 draw.

Here is a look at what took place when lightning struck this Colombian soccer field.
