Tempting Fate?

There is a true story of the two friends who went fishing in a boat on a lake several years ago. As the afternoon progressed, some dark clouds appeared on the horizon and were making their way in. There were occasional flashes of lightning. One of the gentlemen wanted to head back to shore, but the other one is reportedly to have stood up in the boat and yelled “Come and get me!” He had just finished saying this when a bolt of lightning hit him and killed him. The friend was shaken but not seriously hurt. Startling coincidence,  or was he tempting fate?
