A Spanish man has survived an unusual ordeal after being struck by lightning in the scrotum.

The 53-year-old man was walking down a street in Madrid when the lightning struck his scrotum through his pants, Spain's El Mondo newspaper reports.

The bolt is believed to have travelled down one of his legs and foot and right through to the footpath before he lost consciousness.

The man's son called paramedics who treated him for burns to his scrotum and feet.

Doctors at the Hospital de la Paz where the man was treated said his heart and brain functions were not affected by the lightning.
