|20-year-old man killed by lightning on Venice Beach California |
One man has died and at least eight people have been injured in a lightning strike during a rare thunderstorm at Venice Beach in LA. The bolt of electricity made a loud crack that sounded like an explosion on a warm and overcast afternoon, witnesses said. Victims were apparently in the water or very close to it when the lightning struck, local officials said. A 20-year-old man taken to Marina Del Rey Hospital was later pronounced dead, according to the Los Angeles county coroner's department. Report by Jennifer Cordingley.
