Tyler Grisham, 27, was working in a yard when he was struck around 2:30 p.m. after strong thunderstorms with 60 mph winds and small hail rolled through, according to KARK.

"He was one in a million," Wade Boughner, Grisham's father-in-law, told KARK. "He was here one minute and then just blink of an eye he's gone. He never even had a chance."

Grisham, who had two daughters, was taken to a hospital, where he died Saturday, according to KARK.

"They said that they just couldn't do anything, that the lightning strike had wreaked too much havoc on his body," Boughner said.
