Nick Panayiotou was filing the electrical storm over Oyster Bay when a lightning strike hit metres away from himself and his friend.
When the strike happens out of the blue, the camera flashes white.
Instantly in terror the men respond, “Oh my god”.
“I felt it, I felt it,” one of them yells.
The men told Seven Network that they only just decided not to take their boat out onto the river before the deadly storm struck.
