Sunset Rubdown bassist survives lightning

Marc Nicol lightning strikeSunset Rubdown bassist Marc Nicol was recently struck by lightning and survived! He was enjoying hanging out at lakeside when the lightning struck. Aside from a pretty intense burn Nicol’s is doing just fine.

He describes the experience: “My heart started back up after the electrical shock. I woke up feeling like I was suffocating and was delirious. Then I passed out for an hour, woke back up and saw the hair singed on my leg. Only then I knew.”
