WATCH: Lightning Strikes Billy Penn

Tuesday's storm was electrifying for a prominent monument.

This is making its way around the social media rounds today, and for good reason: Lightning appears to have struck Billy Penn during Tuesday’s storm.

I caught Billy Penn snoozing before he got zapped. Check it out!

We checked with Mayor Nutter’s office to see if Billy Penn was damaged by the strike. They didn’t have immediate information, but said they’d get back to us.

[Update]: Jen Crandall from the mayor’s office called back. Billy Penn, she said, has a lightning rod in him — so lightning strikes aren’t that unusual, though pictures of it happening are less so. “He’s fine,” she said.
