Watch: Lightning Strikes During Football GameDramatic video shows the bolt hitting during a halftime performance
Cries rang out at an Orlando University High School football game Friday, Sept. 13, 2013, when lightning struck during the halftime show. A marching band was performing on the field when the bolt appears to strike a tree on the far side of the field. Slow-motion replays in the video reveal the tree completely illuminated when the bolt hits.
"We all ran for cover," a parent of one of the players told the Orlando Sentinel. "The weather was great and it hit with no warning. Friday the 13th was a crazy night."
No injuries were reported, but officials ended the game early.
