Casey Wagner explained that he was visiting an off-road event in Saint Jo, Texas, when storm clouds started rolling in and he took shelter under a tree, ABC News reported.
Wagner, 31, who works as a rodeo clown, said that he first saw sparks splintering off the tree trunk and before he knew it, he was hit by a lightning bolt.
Wagner, who was conscious throughout the ordeal, asserted that he knew he was getting electrocuted and thought he was dying.
Before he hit the ground, a second bolt hit Wagner's right leg.
When Wagner started yelling for help in a paralyzed condition, an unidentified nurse came to his rescue and asked him to keep calm until paramedics arrived.
Wagner, who has posted a Facebook update to try and track down his mystery savior, said that the unidentified woman got him through the whole episode.
Amazingly, Wagner escaped with only minor injuries, and was released from the hospital after doctors told him he was "a miracle".
