roy sullivan

Roy Sullivan, a U.S. park ranger at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, was hit by lightning on seven different occasions between 1942 and 1977. He survived all of them. Roy was included in the Guinness World Records as the person struck by lightning more times than any other human being.

In 1983, Roy died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound over an unrequited love. He was 71.
