Frog struck by lightning

He's Croaked It

Brace yourselves. There's no happy ending. This unfortunate frog got struck by lightning during a storm in Girraween, Australia, killing him instantly.

Belinda Brustolin was at home with her four children and dogs when there was a bright flash and the bolt struck an electricity pole in her frontyard just 20m away. While neither Brenda nor her children were injured by the near miss a green tree frog hiding in a power box attached to the pole wasn't so lucky. The frog was instantly fried to death with Belinda discovering its body when she ventured out to asses the damage following the storm.
