The National Weather Service stated that a person becomes “part of the main lightning discharge channel” when struck by one. The phenomenon occurs when the victim is in open space.

It is lethal because “the current moves along and just over the skin surface (called flashover) and a portion of the current moves through the body–usually through the cardiovascular and/or nervous systems”.
