Q. 394.1( 11 Votes )

A person is in open space during a thunderstorm with no shelter (not even a tree) available nearby. Describe the safe position which he should take to protect himself from lightning. Why is this position considered safe?

Answer :

If there is no shelter available, we must stay away from all trees, poles or other metal objects. We must not lie on the ground but we should squat low on the ground. Hands must be placed on the knees and the head should be between the hands. This position will make us the smallest target to be struck.
