What Happens When Lightning Strikes Human

When full-blown lightning strikes on you, your skin heats up to 27,800 oC (5 times hotter than the surface of the sun) for some seconds and that lightning can contain up to 300KV of energy.

Technically, A lightning strike is a massive electrical discharge between the atmosphere and an earth-bound object, it doesn’t have a temperature.

If any object is a good conductor of electricity, It won’t heat up as much as a poor conductor, and air is very poor conductor of electricity, that’s why it gets extremely hot when lightning passes through it, and due to your skin touch with air, it also gets heat up.
