It's even LESS often that someone could get hit by lightning and consider himself to have been lucky, two-times over!
But that's exactly how Stephen Conroy feels after being hit by a bolt from the blue -- well, dark gray, anyhow.
Conroy was umpiring a polo match in Colts Neck, N.J. Sunday when he was struck.
He not only lived, he came away with only a broken arm.
But, Conroy says, he actually got himself out of what amounted to double jeopardy in the moments preceding the hit.
He told his story to Early Show co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez Tuesday.
Rodriguez also spoke with a physician who exploded some myths about lighting, and offered some safety tips.
