    Lightning Strikes Venice Beach Calif. 1 Dead 13 injured


    Thirty min. before lightning struck Venice Beach, Calif. both of my daughters, my grandson and my granddaughter were standing in the spot the lightning bolt hit. Thank God they moved away. A twenty year old man died, thirteen were injured.


    My daughter had just sent pictures and a message about it raining and lightning at the beach. Then a bit later she sent another picture of rescue helicopters among other rescuers. My family at that time didn't know what all the commotion was about, they were unaware that the lightning had hit beachgoers. They quickly found out though. Staying around to see what happened and take a few pictures. I'm so happy they are safe.


    Very strange thing-A small plane crashed on the beach in the same city of Venice but in Florida, killing a man and injuring a child. I'm wondering about the time span those two Venice Beach's had.
