Courtesy of reader A. W., I was given the link to this tweet, which led me to the associated video (by now copied to YouTube, so I can embed it here).
Among the commenters on Twitter was one who traced the location of the incident to Gurgaon in India, via this news report.
A man died and three were injured on Friday in Gurgaon after lightning struck a tree under which they had been standing to avoid getting drenched in the rain. The horrific incident was caught on a security camera.
The incident took place on Friday evening at Signature Villas apartment complex in Gurgaon’s Sector 82. The four men were part of the horticulture staff at the residential society.

One man was brought dead to a local hospital, another was in intensive care with severe burns. Two are out of danger.

That’s a pretty graphic illustration of the dangers involved. I recall, during my military training, we were warned in pretty severe terms not to stand beneath trees during thunderstorms, and to avoid being anywhere near armored vehicles as well, as the sheer mass of metal they contained tended to attract lightning strikes. Those inside were usually OK, thanks to the insulation provided by the tires and/or the grounding effect of the exterior of the metal hull, but if you were next to it when the lightning struck, you might be in trouble. I can recall at least three incidents where servicemen were killed or severely injured in that way.
