Thank goodness for cameras. You know this is the type of story that no one would believe... Unless you caught it on video!

This couple is lucky to be alive today and have footage to prove it!

They were vacationing in Mexico and decided to pull out the GoPro camera to record whatever it is they were doing.

Almost as they began recording.... BAM.

Bolt of lightning strikes a tree right behind them. They were pretty scared and rightfully so. That lightning strikes that all of a sudden the footage looks like the ending to the Blair Witch Project!

They even came up with a perfect name for their video, you can find it on YouTube under "Almost got hit by a lightning".

Maybe they were too scared from the event to type "bolt"?

Here's the amazing video!
