I remember hearing about a 300lb. man being blown some 30 meters away after
being struck by lightning at an airport. They say his own muscles did it. Though
I'm sure there would be tremendous damage to the muscle, is it possible to
electrically stimulate muscle (say your legs) and produce greater strength than
normal? I also remember a story with video of a person lifting a helicopter off
of his friend. Then there is the common story of Mother lifting car of
Child,etc, etc. Because of Adrenaline? Could Electricity do it too?
