A Charlotte, North Carolina, man says he's recovering after being hit by lightning for the *third* time.

Bob Edwards was leaving a restaurant this week when he says there was a purple flash, and he felt like he'd been hit in the chest with a hammer.

Edwards had to be revived three times. He says he was struck by lightning on the same road in 1997, and three years ago in South Carolina.
