A driver inside the car had set up a camera filming his trip, caught the moment when a bird flies flying the electric pole and "grows alive" while flying.
The whole event was filmed in Illinois, where the driver did not even think it would witness an unusual event, the Telegraph reports.
"I was returning home when I suddenly heard an explosion and in the sky I saw a bird burning alive," wrote the author of the video published on the Internet.
On the other hand, the bird at the moment of contact with the electric pole wire collapsed on the ground, and according to the video author it is not known whether it has been rescued.
But, judged by the looks, the likelihood is very small, because the fire covers the entire body of the bird.
