A professional rodeo clown says he owes everything to God after surviving being struck by lightening - twice.

31-year-old Casey Wagner was attending an off-roading event in Saint Jo, Texas Saturday when a storm rolled in.

Wagner tells the local CBS station that he decided to seek cover under a tree, when lightening struck him - not once, but twice.

"When I got hit, it was just two big old flashes and then sparks went everywhere," Wagner told the local news station.

Wagner escaped serious injury. After spending the night in the hospital, doctors released him.

"I give everything to God," Wagner said. "So, I owe everything to him, he's the one that kept me alive."
