WATCH: Shocking video shows 12-year-old boy nearly struck by lightning

Watch as a 12-year-old boy playing in the rain in Argentina is nearly struck by lightning outside of his home. The bolt missed the boy, but set a nearby fence on fire.

A mother in Argentina captured the moment her 12-year-old son was nearly hit by a blot of lightning while he was playing outside in the rain.

The unnamed boy is seen in the video playing with his umbrella under a downspout before walking out into a grassy area near his home.

Then out of nowhere, a powerful bolt of lightning strikes down just steps in front of the boy — causing a nearby fence to erupt in flames.

The boy’s frightened mom, Carolina Kotur, shrieked and quickly dropped her phone.

Kotur says her son survived the incident, according to multiple reports.
