See Chad Greenlees get knocked out by lightning while making lightning video

Yesterday morning, we shared a collection of user-generated clips from Monday's epic lightning storm -- but we missed the most memorable one. Turns out Arvada's Chad Greenlees was recording the light show on his cell phone from his garage when a nearby strike literally knocked him out. Fortunately, Greenlees okay, and so is his phone, which captured the flash and the moment he collapsed. Continue for the clip, as well as a 7News report in which Greenlees tells his shocking story.
