Lafayette Park: 2 people killed and 2 critically injured by a lightning strike near the White House


Two people were killed and two others are in critical condition after lightning struck at the park next to the White House in Washington, D.C.

Emergency responders received a report about people found injured in Lafayette Park at 6:52 p.m. on Thursday evening. U.S. Park Police and members of the U.S. Secret Service who were in the area at the time also rushed to assist the four people hurt.

No property or vehicles were damaged by the strike, said D.C. Fire and EMS official Vito Maggiolo.

It is believed that the four might have been struck while they were near a tree during the heavy downpour, said Maggiolo.

On Friday morning, 76-year-old James Mueller and 75-year-old Donna Mueller, both from Janesville, Wis., were pronounced dead, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

We are saddened by the tragic loss of life after the lightning strike in Lafayette Park. Our hearts are with the families who lost loved ones, and we are praying for those still fighting for their lives,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement.

As more thunderstorms are expected in the U.S. capital Friday evening, Maggiolo advises people to stay indoors.

If you see lightning or hear thunder, you should seek shelter inside of a building or a vehicle. Do not attempt to seek shelter under a tree,” he said. has been banned from ad networks and is now entirely reader-supported CLICK HERE TO SUPPORT MY WORK… I will send you a small gemstone if you give more than 25$… Thanks in advance!

  1. In one sense i understand what you typed in regards to sinning to a minimum, however all have sinned and a separate from God. Only One can save us and any people willing to accept the free gift God gave through His Son. However Yeshua did say, “And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”

    • Yeah Gracious, the less I sin, the more my prayers are answered. In order to be saved, one must Repent. You can’t just Repent, and keep repeating the sin either. You probably know that already.

      I see people say, God Bless America. I say why should he? After all, the abortion mills are still open for business. The heathen are still perverting the kids. People still worship money, and relish in their wickedness. Those are grave sins too. Unlikely God will Bless a nation like that. I don’t see it happening. The only thing I can personally do is keep my sinning to a minimum. My prayers get answered.

  2. We get lightning like crazy during monsoon season. I used to go outside and snap pix, but lately too many people are getting struck. Last 11 days have been significantly rainy. We have five more days forecast.

    I always wonder what type of people get struck. Were they good righteous people, or were they bad and prolific sinners, deserving of an act of God? Impossible to know. That’s why it’s good to keep the sinning to a minimum. You never know if or when something like this will happen.

    • More thunder and lightning today. 70% woohoo. I love it. Don’t have to water the orchard. Kick back and smoke my tobacoo pipe. Smoking some great C & D, small batch called, Sun Bear. Zesty Virginia with some Orientals. Good stuff. All sold out. Got 20 ounces in my stockpile.
