Melvin Roberts Survives Being Struck By Lightning For Sixth Time (VIDEO)

Melvin Roberts of South Carolina has been struck by lightning an unbelievable six times.

He believes that his record with lightning is connected to his record with marriage: "I've married five time and I've been hit by lightning five times. But [his sixth wife] says this is the sixth time and I'm not leaving my wife, so I'm going to have to do something different."

To place Roberts' run of bad luck in context - scientists say that there there is a 1 in 9,000,000 chance of being struck by lightning twice - they do not have figures for how likely it is to be struck six times.
